What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy is energy which can be obtained from natural resources that can be constantly replenished.

Renewable energy technologies include technologies that use—or enable the use of—one or more renewable energy sources. Types of renewable energy technologies include:

bioenergy bioenergy geothermal geothermal energy hydropower hydropower
wave ocean energy solar solar energy wind wind energy

Renewable energy technologies also include hybrid and related technologies. For example technologies that:

  • store energy generated using renewable energy
  • predict renewable energy supply
  • assist in the delivery of energy generated using renewable energy technologies to energy consumers.
