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 or “green” electricity comes from sources that are infinite like the sun, wind, tides, or other sources that replenish themselves naturally. Why buy renewable energy from ConEdison Solutions? By choosing to purchase renewable energy, you are doing something positive for our air, health, environment, and the condition of our planet. Buying renewable energy reduces the environmental impact of the energy you use. Buying renewable energy also provides jobs and other economic benefits by supporting home-grown, New York State energy sources instead of relying on foreign produced oil and energy. What type of renewable energy would I be buying from ConEdison SolutionsWe have two renewable energy products — Green Power and Wind Power. Green Power is a mixture of 35% wind power and 65% small, run-of-the-river hydropower, and Wind Power is 100% wind. The wind power and the run-of-the-river hydropower are generated from regional facilities that supply the New York State power grid.

Renewable energy is energy from any source that can be maintained in a constant supply over time. In contrast, the supply of fossil energy sources such as oil, natural gas or coal is limited.

Renewable Energy is energy that is derived from resources which are regenerative and which can not be depleted. Types of renewable energy resources include biomass, solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, moving water (hydro, tidal and wave power) and thermal gradients in ocean water. Also municipal solid waste (MSW) can be considered to be a renewable energy resource.

“Renewable energy: Any energy resource that is naturally regenerated over a short time scale and derived directly from the sun (such as thermal, photochemical, and photoelectric), indirectly from the sun (such as wind, hydropower, and photosynthetic energy stored in biomass), or from other natural movements and mechanisms of the environment (such as geothermal and tidal energy). Renewable energy does not include energy resources derived from fossil fuels, waste products from fossil sources or waste products from inorganic sources.
