Abstract

Our world is shifting away from coal sourced energy production and is moving towards finding alternative energy solutions. France and Germany are promising leaders in the development of these new energies and are heavily reliant on resources other than coal. France has decided to use nuclear energy for their future energy demands despite the continued environmental attacks against it. Secondly, our video discuses Germany's more environmental approach for its energy needs. They have chosen to use two renewable energy sources, wind and solar, and Germany is often referred to as "the world's first major renewable energy economy". This documentary addresses the energy history, reasons for the chosen source, and future energy goals for both of these future leaders in alternative energy sources.
