RENEWABLE ENERGY

PROTECT AND CONSERVE THE ENVIRONMENT

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.

GOAL

To make renewable energy production more sustainable. This industry also drives technological innovation and employments.

solar

Solar

Powerful source of energy that can be used to heat, cool, and light our homes and businesses. The most commonly used solar technologies for homes and businesses are solar water heating.

wind-power

Wind

Wind comes from atmospheric changes; changes in temperature and pressure makes the air move around the surface of the earth. Wind power is a clean energy source that can be relied on for the long-term future.

biomass-power

Biomass

The energy from plants and plant-derived materials. The use of biomass energy has the potential to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Burning biomass releases about the same amount of carbon dioxide
