Renewable Energy Technologies
Renewable energy technologies enable us to create electricity, heat, and liquid fuel from renewable sources.
Solar, wind, hydro, wave, heat-exchange, tidal, wave, and bioenergy technologies are all powered by the sun, either directly or indirectly.
Tidal and wave energy technologies are also powered by the moon. Geothermal technologies are powered by deep heat from the Earth's core.
Bioenergy technologies allow us to convert the solar energy stored in plants, food wastes, farm wastes, forest wastes, sewage, and algae into heat, electricity and fuel, using a variety of different approaches.
These technologies allow us to heat and cool our buildings, generate electricity, and to travel by land, sea, and potentially also by air without generating unwanted greenhouse gases and other forms of pollution.
