  Abstract: With the modernization of the world economy, fossil fuel is going to dry up. The status of energy is so austere that exploitation and utilization of alternative energy is becoming a major issue of concern for countries all around the world, especially for the Asian countries that have enormous populations. As Chinese students, we also take Bilingual Physics as an opportunity to do some research on alternative energy. In our opinion, besides the energy provided by nature--in various daily activities like walking, driving, or even making a call--humans are providing energy all the time. In this paper, we will mainly elaborate on the theories of generating power with these energies, which can be seen everywhere but are easy to neglect. On this basis, we will show some relevant applications as well as our guesses and expectations.
