Temperature rises and global warming are very serious issues, to combat the issue proactive change needs to take place to change our source of energy and reduce our energy consumption. Our current source of energy is predominantly from fossil fuels, this includes for example oil, gas and coal. By using these fuels however we are compromising air quality and dramatically increasing the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Increased carbon dioxide means increased temperatures due to the green house effect. As the suns energy enters our atmosphere, a lot of the energy should bounce of the earth and be sent back into space. Carbon dioxide however reflects this energy back at the earth. Therefore the more carbon in the atmosphere the more energy is reflected back at earth and then increased temperatures result. We are now talking the impact of temperature change more seriously, as it impacts on every aspect of our lives, for everyone around the planet. Now the emphasis is on alternative energy forms, renewable and importantly low carbon forms of energy. These include wind, solar, wave, geothermal and biomass. Using these forms of energy are obviously an important factor in challenging climate change, however energy security is also a major benefit to changing our current energy system.

Due to our increased use of energy, fossil fuels are not as abundant as they once were and a few countries control the main reserves. Issues are occurring between nations that hold the reserves and those that need the energy. Arguments are now more frequent between countries and fossil fuel prices, with gas lines stopped, ever increasing price rises and also in many peoples opinion the cause of resent wars. The longer there is this unstable relationship with energy trading and energy consumption continues to increase, disputes and wars will continue. Therefore we need to adopt renewable energy technologies sooner rather than later to improve global stability. The key advantage with renewable energy technologies are they are mostly in some form or another none location specific, hence the energy can be locally produced.

Producing energy locally has multiple benefits; these include cheaper energy prices, stable energy prices, economic support in terms of increased employment and economic support in terms more money kept within the local economy. Energy prices will be cheaper as resources are no longer a limited factor and transportation of energy is dramatically reduced. Energy prices will become more stable as local energy production is less influenced by the global economy, political factors and currency exchange rates. Economic support is generated by providing long-term local jobs in the production, processing and distribution of renewable energy.
