Today humanity is in dire need of replacement of existing energy technologies for environmentally friendly, ensuring the preservation of the biosphere. This is particularly true for energy based on burning natural reserves of coal, oil, gas and uranium. Received energy levels remain low and the problem of power supply does not find a solution.
Today humanity is in dire need of replacement of existing energy technologies for environmentally friendly, ensuring the preservation of the biosphere. This is particularly true for energy based on burning natural reserves of coal, oil, gas and uranium. Received energy levels remain low and the problem of power supply does not find a solution. Delivery of energy to consumers is also costly. In addition, mineral reserves and resources of cheap uranium are exhausted. It is assumed that in the near future consumption of natural resources will reach 25 billion tons, so the forecast that stocks of fossil fuels, humanity will be enough for about 150 years.
Nuclear energy, but the dangers operational matters, has unresolved issue of burial and disposal of nuclear waste. Fewer hopes among scientists on the successful implementation of the program of controlled thermonuclear fusion. The solution to this problem several times already moved away at a later date and now seeing its decision no earlier than 2050. The designs of solar energy. Solar energy will be recycled into electricity by building space stations. To obtain a power of 10 million kilowatt solar panels needed area of approximately 100 square kilometers. In the microwave energy can be transported to Earth. On the way to solve this problem are creating serious problems of transmitting and receiving systems operating in the microwave waves, unsafe for the biosphere, as well as orbital solar power stations, representing a large space objects.
As you can see, clean energy and how to obtain it, safe for the biosphere, in spite of the huge costs in this direction, the world has not yet found. The reason is that the searches are conducted in traditional ways, which, in the attitudes, can lead only to a small “cosmetic” refinements of existing approaches and are not able to bring to breakthrough solutions. Limited energy resources poses the problem of finding radically new ways to generate energy.
If we analyze the most common sources of energy used in the present, we can see a pattern. Its essence is as follows. The final product of the entire chain of energy transformations in modern methods of energy production, is the substance. Moreover, this finite substance is usually more dangerous for the biosphere than the original energy source. This applies to energy based on burning fossil fuels and nuclear energy and nuclear fusion. The world has already become accustomed to the idea that to get the energy needed to act on the matter and at the final stage and getting stuff. Moreover, such a path is almost the only possible one. And is it true? The challenge is to find a totally new ways to generate energy, free from the traditional scheme: “stuff in the beginning – the substance at the end.”
Alternative to existing methods of producing energy may be only those ways in which the final stage of energy transformations will not appear dangerous to the biosphere substance or be completely missing the substance as such. Despite the seemingly paradoxical formulation, the solution exists and this solution provides the physical vacuum. Therefore, at present the direction of finding new ways to generate energy moved to the area of physical vacuum and its intensity in recent years rapidly increased. Quite realistic is the creation of new generators , which can harness the energy of the environment and transform it into a useful form of energy. And there are serious experimental confirmation.
