Types of Renewable Energy sources

Types of Renewable Energy sources

Solar energy is derived by capturing radiant energy from sunlight and converting it into heat, electricity, or hot water.

Wind: Wind farms capture the energy of wind flow by using turbines and converting it into electricity.

Hydroelectric: Water flows through the dam’s turbines to produce electricity, known as pumped-storage hydropower.

Geothermal: heat is heat that is trapped beneath the earth’s crust from the formation of the Earth 4.5 billion years ago and from radioactive decay

Ocean: The ocean can produce two types of energy: thermal and mechanical.

Hydrogen: When hydrogen is separated from another element it can be used for both fuel and electricity.

Biomass: Biomass is organic matter that comes from recently living plants and organisms.
