    New Energy, The Basics

    Renewable energy, explained; Solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass, and geothermal power can provide energy without the planet-warming effects of fossil fuels.

    Christina Nunez, January 30, 2019 (National Geographic)

    “…[New Energy sources like wind and solar can help stave off the worst effects of rising temperatures because] they don't emit carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that…[trap the earth’s heat in its atmosphere to drive climate change. New Energy also] creates jobs, makes electric grids more resilient, expands energy access in developing countries, and helps lower energy bills [which is why cities, states, and federal governments around the world are instituting policies aimed at increasing renewable energy]…Climate change encompasses not only rising average temperatures but also extreme weather events, shifting wildlife populations and habitats, rising seas, and a range of other impacts…

    …Hydropower is the world's biggest source of renewable energy by far…[but] dams can disrupt river ecosystems and surrounding communities, harming wildlife and displacing residents…From 2001 to 2017, cumulative wind capacity around the world increased to more than 539,000 megawatts from 23,900 mw—more than 22 fold…From home rooftops to utility-scale farms, solar power is reshaping energy markets around the world. In the decade from 2007 and 2017 the world's total installed energy capacity from photovoltaic panels increased a whopping 4,300 percent…Biomass energy includes biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel, wood and wood waste, biogas from landfills, and municipal solid waste…[Geothermal energy is derived underground reservoirs of steam and hot water…” click here for more
