Since man first began to use energy intensively, he has been aware of the need for alternative fuels to the ones he depended on. Today, that search is to find an alternative to crude oil based fuels. This paper outlines the available resources of energy other than crude oil, describes the methods of producing these energy resources and discusses how and when some may find increased useage. The paper concludes that for some years to come, we shall continue to depend on crude oil, but that by the beginning of the next century we shall begin to make use of some of the alternatives, particularly coal and uranium.
