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:
About 17% of our worldwide energy consumption comes from renewables. And that share has not increased in recent years.
However, in coming years, wind energy and solar energy will probably bring that share of renewables up. Though the possibilities vary a lot by country.

In a town hall meeting with staffers last week, new Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz dropped a bombshell and a hint. The bombshell, at least as far as fans of natural gas are concerned, is that Moniz sees natural gas not as a permanent fixture in the U.S. energy landscape but merely as a temporary…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/national-news/ernest-moniz-on-natural-gas-and-forgotten-renewables/ Carbon and De-carbonization, Cleantech, Climate, Energy and Economy, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, Energy Security, Environmental Policy, Ernest Moniz, Forgotten Renewables, Fossil Fuel Transportation, Geothermal Energy, Hydro Power, National Energy Policy, natural gas, Obama energy policy, Renewables
This is a great video that describes how geothermal energy is created deep down in the earth, how it is harvested, and where in the world, the resource can be tapped.
