HypérTracker

Energy is what moves us forward. The quest for new convenient energy sources has accompanied the human species throughout its evolution, until the great breakthrough carried by the Second Industrial Revolution, with the introduction of steam machines. However, the consumption of unrenewable sources along with questionable energy policies, soon led to critical downsides: the catastrophic …
