RENEWABLE ENERGY

July 26, 2023by Prostar Global

Renewable energy is energy produced from sources like the sun and wind that are naturally replenished and do not run out. Renewable energy can be used for electricity generation, space and water heating and cooling, and transportation.

 

                                                                                    Types of Renewable Energy

Renewable energy sources, such as biomass, geothermal resources, sunlight, water, and wind, are natural resources that can be converted into these types of clean, usable energy:

 

Bioenergy

Geothermal Energy

Hydrogen

Hydropower

Marine Energy

Solar Energy

Wind Energy

 

                                                                           BENEFITS OF RENEWABLE ENERGY

The advantages of renewable energy are numerous and affect the economy, environment, national security, and human      health.

*    Enhanced reliability, security, and resilience of the nation’s power grid

*   Job creation throughout renewable energy industries

*    Reduced carbon emissions and air pollution from energy production

*   Increased U.S. energy independence

*  Increased affordability, as many types of renewable energy are cost-competitive with traditional energy sources

* Expanded clean energy access for non-grid-connected or remote, coastal, or islanded  communities.

 

RENEWABLE ENERGY AT HOME

 

Homeowners and renters can use clean energy at home by buying green power, installing renewable energy systems to generate electricity, or by using renewable resources for water and space heating and cooling.

Before installing a renewable energy system, it’s important to reduce your energy consumption and improve your home’s energy efficiency.
