Solar energy is a clean, renewable resource that can be used to generate electricity, heat water, and power homes and businesses. Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity, making solar a reliable and efficient way to generate power.
Wind energy is a form of solar energy that is created by the differential in temperatures in the atmosphere, the rotation of Earth, and the planet's geography.
Hydroelectric energy is a form of energy that uses the power of moving water to generate electricity. This can be done by harnessing the power of water in motion, such as water flowing over a waterfall. When water moves, it can create kinetic energy. This energy can then be converted into electricity, which can be used to power homes and businesses.
Geothermal energy tapping into the heat of the Earth's core, created by the slow decay of radioactive particles in rocks at the center of the planet, can generate electricity. Hydrothermal resources, heated water brought to the surface via wells, can power turbines to create electricity.
5. Biomass Energy
Biomass energy refers to the use of organic material from plants and animals to generate heat or power. This includes materials like crops, trees, and waste wood. While biomass can be renewable if it is sustainably sourced, there are many cases where it is neither green nor clean.
6. Tidal Power
Tidal power is a renewable power source that can be generated by the tides. The tides are ruled by the constant gravitational pull of the moon, making this a reliable and constant power source. However, care needs to be taken with regard to the environmental impact of tidal power, as tidal barrages and other dam-like structures can harm wildlife.
