Some forms of green energy are as close as your nearest field. As they grow, plants capture the energy of the sun. That energy can then be extracted in a number of ways: by burning crops to create heat, converting them into green fuels to run vehicles or digesting them anaerobically to create biogas, a fuel similar to natural gas.
Some crops are better suited to particular energy uses than others, while some can serve equally well as a source of food or fuel, but the net result of a booming market in so-called "energy crops" is more markets than ever for your harvest.
The following pages offer more details on different forms of bioenergy:
