Top Renewable Energy Sources

There are several renewable energy resources and environmentally friendly at the same time and natural processes are harnessed. These energy sources are classified as clean energy sources and described as renewable energy since no resources are used to create any energy.
• Tidal Power – is generated in two different ways either through tidal generators which are generally very environmentally friendly or barrage generation. It is not widely used however and similar to wind turbines, as tidal stream generators rotate underwater and swiftly moving dense water drives it.
• Wave power – can be used for water desolation, water pumping and electricity generation. It is a difficult process however in the fact that ocean and wave direction is unpredictable.
• Solar power – is the cheapest form of renewable energy with the use of the sun’s power to produce electricity. This is one of the fastest growing renewable technologies used and very efficient. It is used for small and medium sized applications and widely used every day.
• Wind power – is renewable energy used for mechanical and electrical energy. The conversion of wind energy is a powerful renewable energy resource and its growth is growing each year.
• Hydroelectricity – is the use of power generated by gravitational force of flowing or falling water. It is maybe the most widely used for of renewable energy and after installation initially there is no direct waste.
• Radiant energy – a method called fractionation is used to extract energy from electricity.
• Geothermal power – natural processes are used to extract renewable energy from the earth and very efficient and powerful. Geothermal plants can generate power on large scale and currently used in 24 different countries world-wide.
• Biomass – refers to plant matter grown specifically or even trash such as yard clippings, dead branches and dead trees as well as animal matter as well as biodegradable waste.
