Mitigation Strategies and Solutions 2 Mitigation Strategies and Solutions What is energy conservation? Is it something that the people of this great nation need to do? If conserving energy is something that we need to do, how do we get people to do? Conserving energy is basically saving energy to when we need the most. Today, there are thousands and thousands of people that do what they can to save energy. The problem that people do not understand is that energy can run out. That means no air conditioning, no driving your car, and there are much more that we do to use energy that people may or may not know. The idea is to find ways to create energy and ways to reduce the use of energy. The ways are out there and will go over some of the better ways to create energy, ways to lower the amount of energy people use, a plan to help prevent loss of energy and by educating children about energy conservation, and what our government has done to help our energy situation. What factors, living or nonliving, contribute to the problem? The first thing that people need to know is the two types of energy. The two types of energy are renewable and nonrenewable (Berg, 2006). Renewable energy is energy that comes from a natural source, such as the sun, wind, or even running water. These sources of energy are unlimited and are the source of energy people should use in order to conserve energy (Berg, 2006). Nonrenewable energy is energy that has a limited source. Examples of nonrenewable energy would be coal, oil, or even natural gas. All nonrenewable energy resources are items that the earth could possibly run out of. Just to think that if energy resources could possibly run out what would people use. Gasoline is something that people use every day. Gasoline is made up of oil, which is a nonrenewable resource and can run out. What are we going to do? Well, lucky for us there is an alternative. The better alternative to using oil for gas would be to use Hydrogen for gas. Believe it or not, Hydrogen is already used to power vehicles in Iceland, Japan, Germany,
