Three varying types of renewable energy

Sustainable energy is the future of the energy sector and this article will look at three different types of renewable energy generation.

A sustainable energy origin that has been utilised for a long time is hydroelectric power. This kind of energy production has been employed since the Ancient Greeks, however the first instance of using it to create electricity was in the later part of the 19th century. This sustainable energy source can create a huge amount of energy, although it requires the construction of a dam which is of course rather expensive. Once the dam has been developed the power creation is free, therefore it is one the most cost-effective types of energy creation after the initial expenses have been covered. The Energias De Portugal financiers have recognised this as an energy resource that will increase, as they have started a digitalisation of their hydroelectric facilities all over Europe. Through modernising older dams it will guarantee more proficient electricity production and distribution, which in turn will mean cheaper energy fees for customers.

The most obtainable sustainable solution for the average client is solar power. It is not a very big cost for people to install solar energy panels to the roofs or sides of their houses, and it then lowers their bills. As installing solar panels has a moderately quick payback time, it has made it the most in-demand sustainable home energy solution. Even though this technology is fairly new, it has grown quicker than many other sustainable energy types, and particularly in countries with little rainfall or cloud cover. There are lots of solar power plants all over Europe and the Edison shareholders control 9 major ones in Italy, which are scattered over the whole country. The nature of solar energy of course means that it is considerably more effective in the more southern areas of Europe, so Italy is a ideal place for firms to build solar farms.

One of the most prevalent types of renewable energy in the UK is the transfer of wind energy into electricity, this is unsurprisingly attributable to the relatively continuous winds. On the south coast of England, there is a huge wind farm that consists of 116 wind turbines, which are visible from the coastline. The electricity created from this wind farm will run many houses and its conception was agreed by the E.ON shareholders in 2014, however the construction is still ongoing. The turbines are supposed to run for around 25 years, meaning they are a long-term investment and provider of electricity. The off-shore wind farm is advantageous as it utilises strong ocean winds, whilst being out of the way. No land is used, which conserves money in terms of getting or renting space to build them, but of course there are additional expenses in developing wind turbines out at sea. Although it is not the most consistent type of clean energy, it is still a popular one, particularly in coastal regions.
