1. Solar Energy: Solar Capturing radiant energy from the sun to produce heat or electrical energy
2. Wind Power: Converting the force of the wind into mechanical or electrical energy.
3. Tidal, Wave & Marine: Current Converting the movement of water into mechanical or electrical energy.
4. Geothermal: Extracting natural heat within the earth for direct heating and/or to produce electrical energy.
5. Hydropower: Generating electrically with failing water.
6. Biomass: Burning organic matter such as wood, agricultural waste, and other organic materials to produce heat energy. Methane gas can be produced from organic wastes.
