Alternative energies. Alternative energy is not obtained from fossil fuels. Some alternative sources of energy are: -nuclear energy; -hydroelectric energy; -geothermal energy; -wind energy; -solar energy; -tidal energy; -transformation energy (biomass).

-transformation energy (biomass).
Thanks to its position, Sicily has several natural resources from which we can get energy, so the State and the region are carrying out many initiatives to exploit such resources.
The so called “wind’s farm” are rising, in Sicily’s mountainous zones. They are made of big steel towers that have some turning wind blades on the top and the wind blades that turning produce electric energy.
Sicily is under cover of sunshine, so it can use such a resource. To use solar energy, you have to use a photovoltaic system, that, produces electric energy through solar panels. It needs a photovoltaic system to use solar energy. In this way electric energy is produced through solar panels.
A project for the production of energy from a transformation plant to a biological process is underway and it should be carried out in the industrial areas of Dittaino (Enna). It will have no environmental impact and it will use the Eucaliptus of Enna. In all the island 9 transformation plants are foreseen to obtain energy from dried waste.
Close to Torre Faro (Messina), the research society “Ponte Archimede” has tested the prototype of a plant carried out in the “Enermar” project. It is able to obtain electric energy from tides. Thanks to tidal energy 60 floodlights have been lighted in an experimental platform. The advantage of this system is the predictability of tidal speed.
