What is Green Energy

Green energy is energy that is produced in a matter that has less negative impact on the environment than traditional energy sources. Unlike fossil fuels (oil, coal and gas), green energy is created in a manner that releases very little pollution as a by-product. It is believed that harmful pollutants released by traditional sources has led to global warming, air pollution, land and water pollution.

In an effort to meet the demands of today’s energy consumption as well as preserve our environment for future generations, more green and sustainable energy sources have been engineered to provide an alternative to fossil fuels. Examples of green energy include:

Solar Power – Utilizing captured sunlight to generate electricity.
Wind Power – Conversion of wind to energy via wind turbines.
Wave Power – Development of energy through the use of ocean waves.
Geothermal Power – Energy originated from the earth’s core and brought to the surface.
Tidal Power – Energy from the tides is converted to electricity.
Hydro-electric Power – Clean energy created by flowing water through a tunnel or damn, thus creating increased water pressure that drives a turbine and converts it to energy.
Biomass – Created from biological material from living or recently living organisms such as: plants, dead trees, yard clippings, wood chips, garbage, wood, hydrogen and alcohol fuels.
