July is for Renewable Energy – #CircularOctober
We all take energy for granted. Yet everything we do requires energy in some form or another. Everything we buy has been made with energy, transported by energy and displayed for sale using energy. In fact energy is so ubiquitous we do not even think about it.Except energy is the most important thing we should be thinking about.
So what is renewable energy? Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as biomass, biofuel, sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services.
Renewable energy is not just about reducing carbon emissions and greenhouse gases from fossil fuels. By relying more on renewable energy, an appropriate match between renewable energy and end-user demand can significantly improve the efficiency of energy use.
