Renewable energy sources are currently a particularly pressing need as we all have become addicted to the usage of electrical energy. The extraction of fossil fuels has to be reduced as they are depleting at an ever-increasing rate, which is due to the increase in population and the subsequent rapid urbanization. As a consequence, research into both power-saving electrical appliances and feasible energy sources is ongoing. Thus, it is necessary that future energy sources should be reliable, renewable and eco-friendly.
