Renewable energy Introduction Renewable energy is energy production from sources that are naturally available in the environment and considered to be more sustainable to development and energy use. This implies that these sources of energy are inexhaustible without the risk of over exploitation and endangering of future populations. They also have minimal carbon dioxide (Co2) and Green Houses Gases (GHG’s) emissions, and therefore have less devastating effects on the environment and continual climate change.
