What is Renewable energy?

• Energy from Renewable sources

• Constantly replenished and will never run


• It is contributing a major role in the

production of electricity through out the
Importance of Renewable Energy:

 Environmental Benefits
 Environmental friendly

 Energy for many generations

 If we sow it today, next generation will harvest it tomorrow

 Jobs and the Economy

 It will reduce unemployment

 Energy Security
 Equal energy for everyone

Interesting facts about Renewable

 Incredibly, as of 2017, China builds 2 wind turbines every hour!

 Renewable energy sources, like wind and solar power, now generate almost
one thirdof the UK’s electricity.
 Renewable Energy creates 5 times more jobs than fossil fuels.
 In 2016, Portugal made history by running on renewable energy alone for 107
 If taken advantage of to its fullest extent, sunlight beamed on the earth for 1
hour could meet world’s energy demands for an entire year
 Solar power may account for the world's main source of power by 2050.
 A world record was set in 1990 when a solar-powered airplane flew across the
United States in stages, using no fuel at all.
 In Iceland, 100% of the energy is supplied by geothermal and hydropower
 According to the WWF, the whole world could get all the power it needs from
renewable resources by 2050, ending our reliance on fossil fuels and other
depleting resources – but only if the right political, financial and societal
decisions are made, and quickly
