   Civilization over the centuries has not changed the human need of the physical requirements of heat and light for survival. However, population growth over the years has placed such a demand on the earth's primary available energy resources that there has been a constant search for additional sources to meet the increasing needs. Over and above basis needs, extraordinary demands for energy supply have increased many-fold due to the excessive and wasteful use of power by some countries, resulting in possible permanent damage to the earth's environment. The result is that present resources and methods of energy production, apart from the increased potential damage they may cause to the environment, may not be able to meet future world requirements. Therefore, alternative ways of supplying power must be developed and all possibilities explored. This need is more evident each day as the data concerning global warning is becoming more conclusive. Fortunately there is increasing evidence and practical proof that alternative energy sources can be gained by the use of the earth's natural energy sources that are both renewable and that have little impact on, and damage to, the natural environment. These energy sources are solar, wind and the ocean's potential energy, all of which have identifiable natural locations on the earth's surface, which enhance their performance. While individually each can provide only a percentage of the total requirements, together their output can supply considerable energy.
