5 energy sources you have never thought of

Every day, surplus heat is released into the environment, contributing to global warming and wasting chances of clean energy generation. Opportunities to recover and reuse it can be found in places such as large industrial facilities, but also along the aisles of your local supermarket.   It is estimated that less than 30% of the energy consumed on the planet is converted efficiently. The rest…
