Adam Samaan Sugarcane for bioenergy production: an assessment of yield and regulation of sucrose content ( http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/123294315/abstract? ) Summary: In this article plant scientists are working and researching the development of energy crops. They are attempting to use sugarcane it is high yielding and fast growing. Furthermore, the most important biofuel is bioethanol, which is produced from sugars (sucrose and starch). Sugar can or could be a great alternative to other energy sources and the best as an energy crop.

With this in place they can provide a forecast picture in terms of damage to the electric overhead infrastructure. Overall, electric power companies are attempting to make it easier to foresee power outages and can get power to their customers in the event of a storm.
