Renewable Energies

My favorite types of renewable energies are Biomass, Geothermal, and Wind energy.
  • Geothermal energy is heat from within the Earth. We can recover this heat as steam or hot water and use it to heat buildings or generate electricity.Geothermal energy is a renewable energy source because the heat is continuously produced inside the Earth.
  • Biomass energy: Biomass is organic material made microorganisms. Biomass contains stored energy from the sun. Plants absorb the sun's energy in a process called photosynthesis. The chemical energy in plants gets passed on to animals and people that eat them.
  • Wind energy: Wind is simply air in motion caused by uneven heating on the surface of the earth. Because the earths surface is made of many different things it absorbs heat at different rates.

THE energy

I think in the best type of renewable is geothermal. It's the cheapest way to heat your house, dependable and it works. Some people already use it. But most people don't know about it.
