In the world of innovation and technology, it’s a bitter truth that it took a lot many years for humans to focus and work towards energies which we can recycle.
Today, we are at the edge of running out of our natural resources which have changed our priorities or left us with no choice than to shift to Renewable Energies. Still, a majority of the human race is still uneducated about the concept of Renewable Energies and its types, how it works?
Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally reloaded on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.
Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air, and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services. Renewable energy resources exist over wide geographical areas, in contrast to other energy sources, which are concentrated in a limited number of countries.
Talking about Solar Renewable Energy, it is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaic’s, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten salt power plants, and artificial photosynthesis.
It is an important source of renewable energy and its technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on how they capture and distribute solar energy or convert it into solar power. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic systems, concentrated solar power, and solar water heating to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favourable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.
The large magnitude of solar energy available makes it a highly appealing source of electricity. Towards, which we have to work progressively so that we can better utilize our limited resources and start untiring our unlimited and create a bright future for our upcoming generations to live a resourceful life.
