Editor’s Note: Here at Dispatches, we are always looking for ways to help our readers do things. For some of our readers, that means helping navigate the working world, for others, it means assisting in the ever challenging question,“what’s for dinner?” For still others, it means figuring out how to balance family life with everything else. In an effort to aid in all of these endeavors, we have collaborated on this article written specifically for our readers.
Renewable energy is an industry that generates lots of attention, and there’s room for future growth. You might consider starting a business that focuses on renewable energy or using renewable energy in your existing business.
Solar Appliance Business
Many people think that solar power is only used on top of buildings. But, you can scale it down to the point where it can be used on a single appliance. That’s right; you can design and create everyday appliances that run on solar power. Why is this a good idea? Because things like refrigerators and microwaves will use up loads of energy.
Wind Energy Company
Harnessing wind energy is not just for energy companies. If you have a large tract of land, you might do some research and find out if you can add a wind turbine to the property. There are individuals who are looking into foreign companies and creating wind turbine farms overseas. India’s Renewable Energy Conference is coming up next year and is the perfect place to look into this further.
Electric Vehicle Business
If you drive for your business, consider an electric vehicle business. Even if you don’t drive, you can look into an electric bicycle, which is faster than a regular bike but doesn’t take fuel like a motorbike.
Review your business plan and see if adding any of these renewable energy elements makes sense for you or your business.
