Green Energy Solutions
Green energy comes from natural sources such as sunlight, wind, air etc.These energy resources are renewable, meaning they’re naturally replenished.
Renewable energy sources also have a much smaller impact on the environment than fossil fuels, which produce pollutants such as greenhouse gases as a by-product, contributing to climate change.
Green energy, however, utilizes energy sources that are readily available all over the world, including in rural and remote areas that don’t otherwise have access to electricity. Advances in renewable energy technologies have lowered the cost of solar panels, wind turbines and other sources of green energy, placing the ability to produce electricity in the hands of the people rather than utility companies.
Types of green energy
Research into renewable, non-polluting energy sources is advancing at such a fast pace, there are many types of green energy that are now in development. Here are 2 of the most common types of green energy:
1| Solar Energy System
The most prevalent type of renewable energy, solar power is typically produced using photovoltaic cells, which capture sunlight and turn it into electricity. Solar energy is also used to heat buildings and water, provide natural lighting and cook food. Solar technologies have become inexpensive enough to power everything from small hand-held gadgets to entireneighbourhoods.
2| Wind Turbine
Air flow on the earth’s surface can be used to push turbines, with stronger winds producing more energy. High-altitude sites and areas just offshore tend to provide the best conditions for capturing the strongest winds.
3| Energy Storage Solution
In recent years, renewable energy such as solar/air has become widespread and expanding as a way to reduce electricity costs and address environmental issues. Under these circumstances, energy storage systems are expected to be used for saving electricity costs due to demand cuts and peak shifts, increasing power selling profits, and self-consumption.
Solar panels are becoming popular in towns and cities. If a home owner installs their own energy storage, they will be able to use more of the power generated by their rooftop panels, and save more money on power bills.
