Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are natural.For example sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat. Without renewable energy we wouldn't be able to survive. Most of our sources will eventually give out and not be able to produce energy anymore. like light bulbs, they don't last forever, you will have to buy more and more to replace the last one. renewable energy doesn't work that way though. you can use the same type of energy over and over and it wouldn't stop working, but each type of energy has their flaws
Types of renewable energy:
energy produced by the wind using wind turbines. this type of energy doesn't pollute the air or anything.Wind power is renewable and there is no way we can run out of it (since wind energy originates from the sun) solar energy is Renewable and sustainable and the Costs are relatively low and continue to decrease, but the wind is inconsistent, unsteady and unpredictable.So you may not know when you will and wont have power.
energy that is produced by the sun, solar heating. there are some pros and cons that come with using solar energy. The primary disadvantage of solar power is that it obviously cannot be created during the night. The power generated is also reduced during times of cloud cover.Solar energy is a resource that is not only sustainable for energy consumption, it is indefinitely renewable. Solar power can be used to generate electricity
Wave energy is produced when electricity generators are placed on the surface of the ocean. The energy provided is most often used in desalination plants, power plants and water pumps. wave energy is Pollution-Free,Renewable,Low Operating Costs and Efficient, but also Marine Life can be Affected,Reduced Sea Usage and can be very noisy.
