Sustainable Energy and Electric Cars

Sustainable energy

Sustainable energy is the form of energy obtained from non-exhaustible resources, in such a way, that the provision of this form of energy will serve the needs of the present demands without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. The use of sustainable energy is part of N.V. Elmar's vision towards sustainable development, where the actions of today will ensure a brighter future for our children. Wind and solar energy are forms of sustainable energy. Using these forms of energy is not only cleaner, but in the long run will make us independent of unsustainable and sometimes costly forms of energy such as oil.
