Renewable Energy

With our current energy crisis, it is important for us to seriously start moving towards renewable energy sources and to also start investing in developing and expanding the capacities of these technologies. Natural resources like gas and crude oil, will soon be gone and instead of waiting for the day that everything stops and becomes dark, we need to create change now.

Renewable energy sources are not only clean and beneficial to the environment but they are also sustainable. Many renewable energy sources have already been developed and are currently in use. This section will provide information on the different renewable energy sources that are out there, including; solar, biomass, wind, hydrogen and geothermal.



Clean Energy Basics - What Is Renewable Energy?
The National Renewable Energy Labs presents a general overview on different types of renewable energy, including, solar, biomass, wind, hydrogen and geothermal.

The Benefits of Renewable Energy
There are many benefits to renewable energy use. Fossil fuels create a significant amount of air pollution, renewable energies are cleaner and would greatly improve our environment. Additionally, they would provide a sustainable and secure energy source as currently, our energy problems are predominately caused by depleting and natural resources. The increase of renewable energy usage can also be good for the economy as it can potentially create jobs and stimulate the markets

Biomass and Geothermal Energy
Biomass energy, or Bioenergy, uses renewable biomass (organic materials) resources to produce an array of energy related products including electricity, liquid, solid, and gaseous fuels, heat, chemicals, and other materials. Geothermal energy technologies use the heat of the earth for direct-use applications, geothermal heat pumps, and electrical power production.

Solar and Wind Energy
Solar technologies use the sun's energy and light to provide heat, light, hot water, electricity, and even cooling, for homes, businesses, and industry. Wind energy uses the energy in the wind for practical purposes like generating electricity, charging batteries, pumping water, or grinding grain.

Hydrogen, Hydropower, and Ocean Energy
Hydrogen is the third most abundant element on the earth's surface, where it is found primarily in water and organic compounds. Hydropower refers to flowing water energy that can be captured and turned into electricity. Ocean energy draws on the energy of ocean waves, tides, or on the thermal energy (heat) stored in the ocean.
