IMPACTS
  • Price
    Although the fuel costs are nil in principle, large investments are required for building the necessary infrastructure.
  • Environment
    Virtually no emissions at all
  • Reliability
    Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power are by nature intermittent, and therefore require traditional sources of energy for backup.
  • Public Perception
    A positive and wholesome image in general
Very bad
Very good
