Defining Renewable Energy

Renewable energy can be defined as a source of energy that is constantly replenished and therefore cannot be used up. Fossil fuels are not renewable as they are finite; energy that comes from sources such as sunlight or the wind will never run out, even though they may not always be available.

  3. 3. Issues such as climate change have made humans begin to look at alternatives to ‘dirty’ fossil fuels, which include renewable energy sources such as solar, geothermal, wind, biomass and hydro power. Harnessing the Power of Nature While the term ‘renewable energy’ may be a relatively modern invention, harnessing the power of nature to power things has been a practice that humans have engaged in for cen- turies. Long before we began mining for coal or fracking for gas, we had sailboats and wind- mills. It is only in the past half century or so that humans have relied more on fossil fuels, which were lauded for being cheaper and more effective. Expanding Renewables Issues such as climate change have made hu- mans begin to look at alternatives to ‘dirty’ fossil fuels, which include renewable energy sources such as solar, geothermal, wind, bio- mass and hydro power. The more investment we put into harnessing renewables, the chea- per and more efficient they will become. The expansion into renewables is happening on both small and large scales, from individual homes installing solar panels to giant wind farms powering corporations.
