Solar, nuclear, and wind energy are popular sources of alternative energy-but the list of potential energy sources does not stop there. Geothermal is another popular option, but it may not be very accessible is places around the world without volcanic activity. Though the aforementioned ways to generate and harness energy are typically thought of on large scales, there are small ways to harness the energy released every day from unexpected things. For example, the heat that is given off at crematories was identified as a potential waste of energy. The heat that is generated from crematories has been considered as new places to harness energy and heat things.
