RENEWABLE ENERGY RESOURSES

Renewable energy is generally defined as energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat.

WIND POWER

In this technology airflow is used to run turbines also called wind turbine by which power produces. Modern utility scale wind turbines ranges from around 600kw to 5MW of rated power , although turbines with rated output of1.5 !MW are commonly in use today. "lobally, the long term technical potential of wind energy is belie#ed to be fi#e times total current global energy production, or $0 times current electricity demand, assuming all practical barriers needed were o#ercome.

HYDROPOWER

Energy in water can be harnessed and used. $ince water is about 255 times denser than air, even a slow flowing stream of water, or moderate sea swell, can yield considerable amounts of energy. /icro hydro systems are hydroelectric power installations that typically produce up to (55 6W of power. !hey are often used in water rich areas as a remote7area power supply3R P$4. !he largest of which is the !hree "orges %am in 8hina and a smaller e9ample is the &kosombo )am in Ghana. #ydropower is produced in (05 countries, with the percent of global hydropower in *5(5. sia7Pacific region generating ,*

SOLAR ENERGY

$olar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, is harnessed using a range of ever7 evolving technologies such as solar heating, solar photovoltaic?s , solar thermal electricity, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis. $olar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either using photovoltaics 3P>4, or indirectly using concentrated solar power 38$P4. "t is a clean , non pollution , ever lasting fuel. directly

BIO MASS

.iomass is biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms. "t most often refers to plants or plant7derived materials which are specifically called lignocelluloses biomass. s an energy source, biomass can either be used directly via combustion to produce heat, or indirectly after converting it to various forms of biofuel. 8onversion of biomass to biofuel can be achieved by different methods which are broadly classified into; thermal, chemical, and biochemical methods. Wood remains the largest biomass energy source today .iomass can be converted to other usable forms of energy li6e methane gas or transportation fuels li6e ethanol and biodiesel for the purpose of energy production.

GEOTHERMAL ENERGY

Geothermal energy is from thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth. !hermal energy is the energy that determines the temperature of matter. Earth?s geothermal energy originates from the original formation of the planet 3*5@4 and from radioactive decay of minerals 325@4. !he heat that is used for geothermal energy can be from deep within the Earth, all the way down to EarthAs core B -,555 miles 31,-55 6m4 down. 8ORE !E/P.70,555 C8
