What is Renewable Energy

  • Renewable Energy uses energy source that are not "used up"
  • Solar Power from the sun is renewable as we won't uses all the sunlight from the sun

Why Is Renewable Energy Important

Much of the world relies on non-renewable energy to heat their homes, power their electronic devices, and power their cars.

Mojor Types Of Renewable Energy

Wind Power - Large wind turbines generate electricity from the power of the wind.

Solar Energy - The rays from the sun can help to heat a building or a pool. They can also be turned into electricity using solar cells.

Hydropower - Water from a dam or a river can be used to spin turbines and generate electricity.

Wave and Tidal Power - This new technology is working on ways to harness the vast power of the ocean's waves and tides.

Geothermal Energy - Heat from inside the Earth can be used to heat homes and buildings with heat pumps. Steam from inside the Earth can also be used to generate electricity.

Biomass Energy - Plants gather energy from the sun by photosynthesis. We can harness this energy by burning plants such as trees as well as creating fuel from plants such as ethanol and biodiesel. Even gas from trash and manure can be used to create energy
