5 Types of Renewable Energy

5 TYPES OF RENEWABLE ENERGY Wind Power Turbines use wind to generate electricity without creating pollutants. Currently, this is one of the least expensive alter- native fuel sources available. Solar Power The sun will be a source of energy for billions of years. The current technology to capture this energy includes photo- voltaic panels, solar collectors and thin-film solar sheeting. The solar cells turn sunlight into electricity directly, so there is no need for a generator. Geothermal Energy This is the use of heated water and steam from the Earth to run power stations, which turn the steam into electricity. Biomass This is the use of plant matter and animal waste to create electricity. When converted properly, it is a low-carbon source of energy with little pollution. Hydroelectric Power This uses flowing water to move turbines which generate electricity. Hydropower provides 20 percent of the world's energy needs, according to the United States Geological Survey.
