Renewable energy sources
Important aspect of the climate change mitigation is the transition to renewable energy sources. Some of the most important renewable energy sources are:
Solar – it relies on the nuclear fusion power from the Sun. The energy is collected from the Sun and then converted – the technologies used for this process are for example solar collectors or photo voltaic cells.
Wind Power – through wind turbines the wind energy could be turned into electricity or used to pump water.
Biomass – the organic matter that makes up the plants is called biomass and it can be used to produce electricity, transportation fuels, or chemicals.
Geothermal power – it relies on the Earth’s internal heat for electric power production, heating and cooling of buildings.
Other forms of energy – energy from tides (resulting from the gravitational pool upon the Earth) and the oceans are other forms that can be used to generate electricity.
