What is renewable energy and sources
Renewable energy refers to sources of energy that can be replenished in a short period of time. Some renewable sources are essentially infinite such as solar, wind and hydro power. Biomass and geothermal power can also be replenished, when properly managed. Renewable energy can be used as transportation fuels, to produce electricity, and for heating. Clean, renewable energy is not new, but a collection of economic, environmental and technological changes are leading to new and rapid development in the way these resources are used.
What is Alternative energy
Renewable energy is energy which can be obtained from natural resources that can be constantly replenished.
Renewable energy technologies include technologies that use—or enable the use of—one or more renewable energy sources. Types of renewable energy technologies include:
Biomass is plant material or animal waste. Examples include trees, corn, grass, and manure. The gases collected from the decomposition of these materials may also be used, such as landfill gas.
Biomass contains energy that can be used in a variety of different ways. Simply burning…http://renewableenergy.com.pk/bioenergy-biomass/what-is-biomass-energy-and-resources/ bioenergy, biomass energy, Biomass energy and resources, what is Bio-fuel, what is Biomass energy
