Hydro Energy or Hydroelectric Power Generation

Hydro energy or hydroelectric power is generated from all the water resources on Earth. Hydro power uses everything from evaporation, rainfall, tides to the force of water running through a dam to generate energy. Hydro energy is also generated from the vast heat trapped deep under the earth’s crust in the form of geo thermal energy, created by during formation of the planet and the radioactive decay of minerals. Hot springs is another source of geothermal energy which is now […]

One of the most abundantly available Energy Sources

Sunlight is one of the most abundantly available energy sources. That is why it is also the most common green energy source used by countless solar energy projects around the world. Solar energy is generated using photovoltaic cells to capture sunlight and convert it into electricity. Solar energy today is being used to light the streets of remote villages and homes, provide natural light, to cook food, to heat up buildings and water. Solar energy projects are also some of […]

Unconventional Sources of Renewable Energy

Around the world, there is an ongoing effort to discover untapped sources to create renewable energy. Apart from natural and bio-organic matter, countries like Sweden have created a revolution by generating energy from waste. So successful is this experiment that Sweden is now importing waste from its neighbours to feed its waste recycling and energy production machinery. Here are some other unconventional sources of renewable energy which hold a great promise for the future.   ·         Magma One of the […]

What is Green Energy

Green energy is defined as energy derived from natural sources including sunlight, wind, rain, geothermal heat, biomass such as plant and animal matter. Fossil fuels have an expiry date on them as they take millions of years to develop. We are rapidly using up the fossil fuel resources available to us. Clearly, we need to look for alternative sources of energy which are rapidly renewable as well as clean for the environment. As fossil fuels burn up, they put additional […]
