What is renewable energy?

Renewable is energy derived from natural sources that are replenished at a higher rate than they are consumed. Sunlight and wind, for example, are such sources that are constantly being replenished.

Renewable energy sources are plentiful and all around us.

Water Power:

Hydropower harnesses the energy of water moving from higher to lower elevations. It can be generated from resevoirs and rivers. Hydropower or waterpower is the cheapest energy source.

Solar Panels:

Solar panels absorb and use the energy from the sun to create new energy. They are placed everywhere such as on roofs as wells as on fields.

Wind Mills:

Wind mills use wind to create energy with their big wings. They have big turbines that allow us to take this wind and turn it into energy. It is a very clean way to get energy.

The Global Wind energy outlook projects that by 2030 wind energy will offset 2,5 billion tons per year of carbon.
