Earth Science Unit 3.2 Renewable Energy

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.
