ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study which found out that individual's energy needs with renewable energy can cover full power requirements in 2100 if energy consumption decreases and sufficient power facilities are made. The study suggests that it is necessary to develop an effective mix of power sources, including coupled fuel cells, wind parks and photovoltaic facilities. The study advised that people should minimize their energy consumption and provide clean, affordable, and alternative power.
