Abstract: Energy in the United States is a widespread topic focused primarily on two areas, fossil fuels and renewable energy. These two sectors can be broken down into energy sources such as hydroelectricity and crude oil. Solar and wind power are the most prominent renewable energy sources, particularly due to high cost-effectiveness. The importance of less volatile energy, which can be found in renewable sources, is emphasized through current market conditions with sentiment gathering around lexicons such as "crisis," and "collapse." As cost-effectiveness continues to increase, additional organizations will begin to adopt sustainable energy in future endeavors and industry concentration will shift from conventional energy to renewable energy, especially regarding electricity generation.
