Abstract

This paper examines the applicability of domestic/home power generation technologies utilizing sustainable/renewable energies in rural and regional Australia. Applicability will cover several aspects such as sustainability and viability. The question is why renewable/sustainable energy? Energy is the keystone of nature and society. Human civilization was spawned eventually by building machines that could use energy stored in fossil fuels. Since the Industrial Revolution the population, economy, and energy use have surged, fuelled literally by non-renewable fossil fuels. Nevertheless, growth will be limited by diminishing availability of fossil fuels and environmental constraints on their use, sooner than most realize. Australia is fortunate in that it has numerous sources of renewable/sustainable energies sources such as wind, solar, bio-energy, geothermal and hydropower. Conclusions and recommendations show that there are viable and applicable alternatives and/or replacements of sustainable/renewable energy sources to existing traditional energy sources applying domestic/home power generation technologies.
