Renewable energy

What are renewable energies?

Renewable energy or sustainable energy is energy from short-term sources that renew themselves or whose use does not contribute to the depletion of the source. Therefore it is sustainable resource availability. They are in particular solar radiation (solar energy), heat of the earth itself (geothermal energy) and the energy used to the effects of gravity (tidal force) with hydraulics. Other sources, on the wind (wind energy) and the potential of biomass (bio-energy generated from renewable resources), can be understood as forms derived from solar energy.

Types of energy

Wind energy is the kinetic energy of air movement in the atmosphere. It is an indirect form of solar energy and therefore renewable. The turbines use dates back to ancient times to obtain energy from the environment.

The wind turbines used to generate electricity in all climatic zones, either at sea (offshore wind or off-shore) or on land (coastal, inland, mountains). Due to the unreliability of the wind, the electrical energy generated by wind turbines can be utilized only in conjunction with other sources of energy or very small networks with storage.

The energy reaching Earth from the Sun is received in the form of electromagnetic radiation, which is the basic energy source for life on Earth. The origin of this energy is in the interior of the Sun, which hosts the fusion reactions for which four hydrogen atoms give rise to two helium atoms and the atomic mass is transformed into energy excess. That is, the Sun behaves as a fusion reactor located 150 million kilometers.

Photovoltaic cells convert part of solar radiation directly into electricity.

The concentration of energy from the sun, allowing the generation of electricity, this is called solar thermal energy. This generation would be made by injecting the steam generated at high pressure turbine which is responsible for operating the electric generator.

Getting their efficient implementation and develop this technology can lead to competitive power generation with associated environmental benefits typical of a renewable and environmentally friendly.
