Geothermal energy
Geothermal energy is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth
geothermal heat pumps
A geothermal heat pump or ground source heat pump is a central heating and/or cooling system that transfers heat to or from the ground
Passive solar heating
In passive solar building design, windows, walls, and floors are made to collect, store, and distribute solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and reject solar heat in the summer
solar collector
A solar thermal collector collects heat by absorbing sunlight
tidal energy
Tidal power, also called tidal energy, is a form of hydropower that converts the energy obtained from tides into useful forms of power, mainly electricity
solar panel
Solar panel refers to a panel designed to absorb the sun's rays as a source of energy for generating electricity or heating
offshore wind farms
Offshore wind power or offshore wind energy is the use of wind farms constructed offshore, usually on the continental shelf, to harvest wind energy to generate electricity
wind energy
Wind power is the use of air flow through wind turbines to mechanically power generators for electricity
wind farms
A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electricity
wind turbines
A wind turbine is a device that converts the wind's kinetic energy into electrical power
