Three Best Sources of Renewable Energy

Electricity Generation, Renewable Energy No Comments

Renewable energy will be the ultimate energy solution for the near future. When there was no electricity human used the power of renewable energy. You may ask how, humans used windmill, water mill for their various purposes.

When we started to use electricity in our home and industry then it becomes demandable day by day. Now we cannot spend a single day without electricity. For getting the demand at first we went through fossil fuel like coal, natural gas, and very expensive ground oil.

We already used most of the dependable sources. Because this kind of fossil fuel you cannot find in every place in this world. There is someplace in this world where we can get fossil fuels like Middle East countries.

There is a lot of problems when you are using fossil fuel. When we burn fossil fuel then it leaves Carbon Di Oxide to the air and it’s really harmful to humans. For this reason, renewable energy will be the best solution for future energy demand.

In this post, I will discuss the three best sources of renewable energy that we can find in any country. Now come to the point, why we called it renewable energy?

The answer is the energy that is usually collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as the Sunlight (Solar Power), Wind, Rain Water, Tides, Geothermal Heat and Waves. But Tides, Geothermal Heat and Waves is not possible to get in every place. For this reason, I will discuss only the three best sources of renewable energy for you.

Three Best Sources of Renewable Energy:

  1. Sunlight (Solar Power): When you weak up in the morning and you see the sun from your window that means you can generate electricity by using solar power. You just need to select a place where is no shadow and lots of heat. Then just collect some solar panel and connect some DC battery with that and it will be charged the battery by using a solar panel. You can use this solar-generated electricity in the day time and when the sun goes off then you can use electricity from the solar-charged battery. This is how you can generate electricity from a source which will come again tomorrow and you can produce electricity again and again.
  2. Wind Power: Wind is an available source of energy that we can find at every place in this world. But you cannot set up and wind turbine at any place because you must need at least 6–8 meters per second of wind speed for a small wind turbine. When wind flow and it drags the turbine blade then the turbine blade moves a rotor that connects with the main shaft and it spins a generator and produces electricity. But this technology is very expensive.
  3. Rain Water: This year we are having a lot of rainfall in Asia. For this reason, we faced several floods in several countries. But there is a way that we can use this rainwater for producing electricity and we are already using this technology. We just need to select a place that is surrounded by a hill. Then just need to build a dam and store the rainwater. This technology’s main key point is gravity. Water will fall from a height when the dam’s hydraulic gates are open. But in the meantime, water will flow through a water turbine and the turbine will connect with the main shafts and these shafts will spin a generator and produce electricity. This technology’s name is Hydroelectric Power Generation. Rainwater will flow to a river after generating electricity.
