Renewable Energy is energy that can be harvested from a renewable source, such as wind, rain, sunlight, waves, tides and geothermal heat. The renewable energy association attempt to increase the UK’s use of renewable sources. ‘More renewable energy in the UK means less reliance on energy imports, more jobs and lower greenhouse gas emissions’. Officials in Denmark have recently decided that by 2050 they will have switched their total energy supply to 100% renewable.

Why Renewable

Fossil Fuels are non-renewable, they will eventually run out, they draw on finite resources. Meaning that they will become more expensive has the supply and demand changes.
Renewable methods are clean sources of energy that have more lower environmental impacts. Energy methods such as solar panels are attempting to replace ones that are clearly more harmful to the environment.
