At present, fossil fuels are readily accessible. These fuels are easy to use, and a simple combustion procedure turns them into energy for running a vehicle, generating electricity and/or heat. Fossil fuels are currently a cheap source of energy and so are the methods of producing energy from them.
Identify three renewable energy sources and assess their potential to replace fossil fuel
The rapid depletion of fossil fuels has given serious warning that the era of using conventional energy is coming to an end. Due to the energy shortage, a need to find replacement of fossil fuels has appeare

Fossil Fuels: Oil
Introduction History We are a country that runs on oil. From the gasoline in our cars to the plastic in our computers to the detergents that we put in our dishwashers, we rely on oil for our modern way of life. It cannot be understated just how strong of a role it plays in our eco
Fuel Replacement for Cars
When Fred Flintstone stepped into his car and headed off to the rock quarry, he didn't have to worry about the effects of gasoline pollution--Fred's car was fueled by his own feet. Of course, Fred was also a cartoon, so trying to follow his example is a moot point.

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, if we found a way to use it as a primary fuel source, we will have found an answer to a new sustainable energy source. This can be challenging since hydrogen is r
Since the beginning of industry humans have been in search of fuel to power machines and generate energy. Fossil fuels, such as crude oil and coal, discovered beneath the Earth’s surface were found to be an excellent source of fuel. These fossil fuels are bur
Part One - Introduction
Fossil Fuels are the most important energy sources in our world today. The overwhelming majority of the huge amount of energy used in the world comes from the burning of three major fossil fuels: coal, petroleum, and natural gas. Fossil fuels are a non-renewable source of
