Nowadays, we’re becoming increasingly aware of the detrimental impact we’re having on the very planet we live on. Human activity is destroying the environment. We’re engaging with deforestation. We’re polluting the atmosphere. We’re promoting global warming and climate change, which in turn is melting icecaps, rising sea levels and increasing the number of greenhouse gases we’re emitting. This is all negative. We’re creating an uninhabitable space when we need to live here, along with animals. Now, there are various steps we can take to reduce our impact on the planet. We can go vegan. We can reduce plastic usage. We can walk instead of driving, or opt for public transport when travelling a distance. But there’s another area we should pay more focus to – energy.
We all use energy on a daily basis. We use electricity or gas to heat and power our homes, work spaces, and commercial or public spaces. Of course, we can’t really live our lives fully without energy. However, we can stop engaging with fossil fuels and opt for more eco-friendly, renewable energies instead. The infographic below will give you a little insight into smart grid technologies and how they can distribute energy in an efficient and green way! This, of course, isn’t a change you can necessarily implement yourself. But it is making green energy more accessible, meaning you can then act by opting for green and renewable energy instead of more harmful options on the market.
