Duke Energy hires sheep’s and Shepard’s among other jobs like engineers .
By 2030, the energy production will be  1/3 Nuclear, 1/3 natural Gas

 

10% Coal and the rest is renewable energy . The demand for Natural Gas will still be higher because it’s cheaper but renewables are cleaner . Wind Energy- drones are used to inspect blades and algorithms are used to calculate whether a turkey eagle or other birds will be flying into the wind blades . So far there has been no fatalities because of the accuracy of these calculations .
Battery Storage - will also be a well utilized energy source in the future with the emergence of electric cars and will continue to be a cheaper source with more production and time .
