Renewable energy is energy produced from natural processes and sources which are continuously regenerated or replenished. Such sources include wind, sunlight, water, geothermal energy, the tides, and various forms of biomass. This type of energy is inexhaustible and is continuously being replenished.
The main benefits of renewable energy are:
Environmental benefits: Renewable energies are clean sources that have a much smaller environmental impact than conventional energies.
Long-lasting energy: Renewable energies are inexhaustible since they are constantly being replenished. In contrast with other types of conventional energies, which are finite and, therefore, can be depleted (e.g. oil and coal), renewable energies are our permanent ally.
They create jobs and improve the economy: Most investments in renewable energies are spent on materials and the workforce to build and maintain facilities at local level. This creates local jobs and grows the country's economy.
Energy security: Renewable energies reduce a country's energy dependence, enhancing its self-sufficiency and sustaining major investments that would otherwise be used to pay for imports of non-renewable energy from other countries.
