Green energy is an energy sector that uses renewable energy sources (RES): sunlight, water flows, wind, tides, and geothermal heat. Such energy is also called renewable or regenerative.
According to scientists, “green energy” can solve many modern problems. Reducing air emissions will avoid millions of premature deaths due to diseases caused by air pollution. As a result, health care costs will also decrease.
Non-traditional energy sources include the energy of the Sun, wind, tides, sea waves, and geothermal and thermonuclear energy. Special hopes are placed on hydrogen, as it is the most promising energy carrier.
Bioenergy is energy, both electrical and thermal, produced from fossil fuels. The latter are divided into three generations. The first of these include products obtained as a result of waste processing.
The reason for the search for alternative energy sources is the need to obtain it from the energy of renewable or practically inexhaustible natural resources and phenomena. Environmental friendliness and economy can also be taken into account.
It should also be noted that the concept of green energy development in Kyrgyzstan is relevant. Long-term measures are needed to strengthen the energy potential of the Kyrgyz Republic: regardless of the water inflow in the Toktogul reservoir to ensure sufficient water in the reservoir; rational use of water and energy resources; construction of new generating capacities, renewable energy sources and green energy, including the development of incentives for increasing the capacity of small hydropower.
The Green Alliance of Kyrgyzstan conducts its activities to promote green energy in the country and assists relevant stakeholders in this direction.
