Global demand for energy has risen inexorably in the last 150 years in step with industrial development and population growth. The lion's share of global energy (about 80% at present) is supplied by coal, oil, and gas the 'fossil fuels' that formed long ago from the carbon-rich remains of dead plants and animals. However, these are non-renewable sources that will one day be exhausted. The world needs energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
