As energy demands rise, the best sources of alternative energy on the marketplace are directly at odds. With new wind farms going up every year and nuclear power plants struggling to hold their position in the market place, the two could begin to kill each other off if they are not careful.
The two sides are also being pressured by natural gas as a much cleaner alternative to coal. The problem is that these competing forces are causing fluctuation in the markets that are radically altering their prices. The changes in prices have brought electricity prices down as demand goes down due to help from alternative energy. Because of this, alternative energy prices are not soaring, either.
As the alternative energy sources cut into each other's market share, we should look out for trouble in the future as demand and production rise simultaneously in the market.
