Definition - What does Renewable Energy mean?
Renewable Energy is the energy that is generated from natural resources like rain, wind, sunlight, geothermal hot springs and tides which are constantly replenished. These energy resources are present all over the geographical areas contrasting other energy sources that are concentrated in limited number of countries. The energy replaces the conventional fuels in four major different areas; these areas are:
- Water and air cooling or heating
- Rural energy services
- Electricity generation
- Motor fuels
While various projects are large scale, the renewable technologies also suit the remote and rural areas and also the developing countries where the energy is mostly crucial in the human development.
Petropedia explains Renewable Energy
The rapid development of Renewable Energy, technological diversification and energy efficiency results in the economic benefits and significant energy security. It reduces the environmental pollution like air pollution which is caused by burning fossil fuels. It also improves the public health, reduces various premature moralities and saves the associated health costs. The technologies also include related and hybrid technologies. For instance, the technologies which predict the supply of Renewable Energy store the energy that is generated while using Renewable Energy and also the technologies which assist in delivery of the energy that is generated by using the Renewable Energy by the consumers.
