The world is beginning to run out of its natural resources and as the effects of their exploitation becomes more and more concerning, the world is starting to turn to other forms of energy production. With binding legislation that will see the European Union produce 20% of all its energy from clean sources by 2020, the presence of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar farms are going to increase dramatically. Nuclear energy production also offers another alternative.
