A huge proportion of the world's energy resources come from natural gases, fossil fuels, and nuclear fuels. These types of energy sources emit harmful chemicals and residues in the atmosphere, on the soil and in various bodies of water, which are harmful to the environment. Recent studies estimate that the demand for energy will increase affectedly within the next few decades. Many scientists around the world agonise over the postulated insufficiency of natural gases which are now considered to be finite and unsustainable. Also, global environmental problems like global warming call for cleaner energy sources in order to preclude degenerative developments in the world's environmental conditions. The running down of United Kingdom’s vast energy resources, along with the forecasted escalation of the world’s energy consumption imperils its energy security. Jamieson 2 Sole reliance on fossil and nuclear fuels voids its commitment to reducing energy consumption and cutting carbon emissions. The national government now turns to exploiting renewable energy sources that will increase energy supply. The adoption of renewable energy will also help in the decarbonisation of the atmosphere using Carbon and Capture Technology. The Department of Energy and Climate Change’s Office for Renewable Energy Development exerts effort in order to understand how this transformation can be achieved and to discuss the possible barriers that may debar adoption of renewable energy. How to achieve development of diverse renewable resources The implementation of renewable energy technologies in the United Kingdom can “meet the target to deliver 15% of the UK’s energy consumption from renewable resources by 2020” (Department of Energy and Climate Change, “Renewable Energy”). There are eight (8) renewable resources technologies that will be used to generate at least 15% of the total energy consumption in the United Kingdom by 2020. These are the following: (1) Onshore wind; (2) Offshore wind; (3) Marine Energy; (4) Biomass Electricity; (5) Biomass Heat; (6) Air-source and Ground-source heat pumps; (7) Renewable Transport; (8) Solar and Geothermal Technologies. The national government should focus on the following measures in order to achieve these developments: 1. Enabling access to the grid. Deployment of energy generated by renewable energy resources cannot be completed without access to the grid. This can make or break the plan. The government must ensure that grids are supplied on all renewable energy sites in order to ease deployment actions. Jamieson 3 2. Making sure of a sustainable supply of bioenergy. Bioenergy is seen to possibly contribute almost half of the total energy production needed to meet the 15% target. However, matters pertaining to its sustainability may reduce the use of bioenergy. 3. Technological Advancement. A constant upgrade on technological support is needed to elevate efficiency on the deployment of energy throughout the country. While tools and equipment used in some forms of renewable energy technologies are relatively advanced, others are yet struggling from having comparatively outmoded technology. The Relevance of Sustainable Consumption to Global Issues The depletion of the natural resources, particularly fossil fuels, which are primarily used to generate energy, alarms the global community of a prospective worldwide dilemma that could possibly involve

The business models and the strategies that are promoted by the company management will also be referred to. Beyond this, a general overview of the clean energy sector, issues, challenges, and factors that promote sustainability will be studies. Following this, there will be a conclusion which will present the recommendations to better manage sustainability and value creation in this sector.
With the emergence of internet as well as various kinds of sophisticated technological gadgets in the various corners of the world, which comprises of the developed as well as developing nations, it can be said that the access to various kinds of information has become relatively easy as compared to the previous days.
But this reason is obviously does not seem to be the main one.
It should not be overlooked that the stories told by the prominent English writer in 16th century have not lost their topical character till nowadays. Moreover, it is believed that in many cases, the films based on Shakespearean plays are essentially drawing on the iconic position of the playwright which allows the film directors to incorporate their own ideas into the old plots and explore their own society and context of production.
When the government attempts to regulate the exercise of speech rights in traditional public forums, such as parks or public sidewalks, the U.S. Supreme Court examines whether the regulation restricts the content of the speech or merely regulates the time, manner, and place in which the speech is delivered.
