Often, urban settings do not lend themselves to renewable energy sources. Cities typically do not have sprawling land to build a solar panel array, or space to construct a 300-foot-tall wind turbine to generate alternative energy. But this is about to change. Today, with new designs and technology emerging, there are more options than once existed to include renewable energy sources in urban design. Below, let’s examine some new technologies that can bring renewable energy to the urban landscape.

Renewable energy is quickly sweeping the globe with its overall efficiency, relatively low cost, and low impact on the environment. Renewable energy, though, has had a long-standing issue with the amount of energy provided. Typical applications do not allow excess energy to be stored and reused during high demand times, still forcing people to rely on inefficient systems or fossil fuels. However, recent battery developments have changed the way we think about renewable energy.

Traditional fossil fuels have long been the standard for energy in the world. Though, with new technologies, renewable energy is giving traditional energy generators a run for their money. Renewable energy is closing the gap on cost effectiveness and efficiency at a rapid pace, and the technology only continue to improve every day. Let's take a closer look at the numbers to see exactly why renewable energy is the better energy choice.

A wind turbine consists of two or three giant blades that look like propellers attached to a rotor. The rotor is attached to a main shaft, which is then connected to a generator. When the wind blows, the large blades begin to spin. The rotational movement transfers to the shaft, which also spins. This transfers to the generator, which creates electricity.
