What is renewable energy?

0

‘Renewable energy’ is energy obtained from sources that essentially are inexhaustible, UNLIKE fossil fuels, for example, of which there are finite supplies. The non-profit Center for Resource Solutions, the main group responsible for auditing and oversight of the green power industry, considers the following types of electrical generation renewable energy: wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, landfill gas, and small hydroelectric (30 megawatts capacity or less).

Renewable energy comes from sources that are infinite like the sun, wind and tides, or that replenish themselves naturally including hydro, geothermal and biomass.

Electricity that is made from environmentally friendly fuel resources—-such as wind, water, organic waste or solar. Sometimes called “green” energy.

Renewable energy is any energy source that can be either replenished continuously or within a moderate timeframe, as a result of natural energy flows. The so-called “renewables” include solar energy (heat and electricity), bioenergy, wind power, hydropower, and geothermal power.

Energy resources that are naturally replenished are considered renewable. They are virtually inexhaustible in duration but limited in the amount of energy that is available at a time. Renewable energy resources include wind, biomass, hydro, geothermal, solar, ocean thermal, wave action and tidal action. Reliant’s renewable plans offer a pollution-free energy product generated from 100% wind; find out if one is available in your area.
