Renewable Energy is defined as energy produced from resources which will not get consumed and run out.
There are 4 major types of renewable energy sources:
Geothermal: uses the heat of the earth
Hydroelectric: recovers energy from gravity when water flows down from a lake (reservoir) through a dam.
Wind: produced electricity when wind turns a motor.
Solar: concerts energy from the sun into electricity.
