  Energy - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
Energy of physical system in a certain given state is defined as the amount of work (W) needed to change the state of the system from some initial position, known as the reference state or reference level, to a specific or final position.
In contrast to kinetic energy, which is the energy of a system due to its motion, or the internal motion of its particles, the potential energy of a system is the energy associated with the spatial configuration of its components and their interaction with each other.
Future energy development, for example of renewable energy, may be key to avoiding the effects of global warming.

 ALTERNATIVE ENERGY
Energy sources are substances or processes with concentrations of energy at a high enough potential to be feasibly encouraged to convert to lower energy forms under human control for human benefit.
Except for nuclear fuels, tidal energy and geothermal energy, all terrestrial energy sources are from current solar insolation or from fossil remains of plant and animal life that relied directly and indirectly upon sunlight, respectively.
Fossil fuels, in terms of energy, involve the burning of coal or hydrocarbon fuels, which are the remains of the decomposition of plants and animals.

 Future energy development Totally Explained
Future energy development faces great challenges due to an increasing world population, demands for higher standards of living, demands for less pollution and a much-discussed end to fossil fuels.
Almost all forms of terrestrial energy, such as fossil fuels, solar, wind, ocean thermal, and hydropower, can be traced back to energy received from the sun's fusion reactions.
In the long-term future space exploration could yield a number of energy sources, though they're unlikely to be relevant in tackling humanity's current difficulties with energy sources.

 EERE News: Future U.S. Energy Use Depends on Efficiency, Renewables
U.S. energy demand is expected to increase 32 percent from 2000 to 2020, according to DOE's Energy Information Administration (EIA), but the forecast could change with faster or slower penetration of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
Energy efficiency is measured at the national level by "energy intensity," that is, the amount of energy used per dollar of gross domestic product (GDP).
The publication, "Energy Needs, Choices and Possibilities," examines two possible scenarios for future energy development — one in which there is an evolutionary progression to new energy sources, and one in which society moves toward a hydrogen economy.

 Future energy security will require development :: ENN
WASHINGTON — Future energy security will require development of new nuclear power plants, coal that is less polluting and tougher federal requirements on automobile fuel economy, a nonpartisan panel of energy experts says.
The privately funded panel, charged two years ago with developing a consensus energy blueprint for the country, concludes in a report being issued Wednesday that the government will need to spend billions of dollars to ensure future energy security.
The recommendations of the 16-member National Commission on Energy Policy are viewed as significant because the commission includes a wide cross-section of energy experts, including Republicans and Democrats, industry executives, environmentalists, labor leaders and former government officials involved in energy issues.

 ICCP 2001 - Prospect of Cleaner Energy Development in China
The trend of energy end-use consumption demand is to optimize energy mix, increase the proportion of power generation and develop and utilize natural gas, new energy and renewable energy.
Depended on present biomass energy, the research and development of new technology and equipment for reducing pollutant emission, protecting environment and improving people’s living standard in rural areas are both market demand and focal point of the cleaner energy technology development.
The development of cleaner energy technology involves many factors such as capital, technology, policy, etc. It is suggested that the departments concerned organize the scientific research to encourage the development of advanced technology for promoting actively the economic and social development.

 Coal to remain top energy source for China
"Development of coal and electricity is the core of the development of China's energy industry," said Wang Jiacheng, deputy director of the Industrial Economics and Technical Economics Institute under the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC).
The energy plan had been approved by the State Council, which had also approved a plan to enhance railway transportation capacity to alleviate supply bottlenecks caused by a lack of transportation facilities, the paper said.
While China has started "clean and green energy" projects and even passed a Renewable Energy Law on February 28, it is just in the earlier stages of harnessing the sun, wind, water and nuclear energy as important sources of power.
