Solar energy- Solar Energy can be used to make a home work without electricity. This type of energy is generated by sun Solar energy is most used in Japan . (Avni)

Hydroelectricity- hydroelectric power, is electricity produced from hydropower. In 2015, hydropower generated 16.6% of the world's total electricity and 70% of all renewable electricity, and was expected to increase by about 3.1% each year for the next 25 years.(Angel)

Wind energy-Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, such as using wind turbines to make electricity, wind mills for mechanical power, wind pumps for pumping water or drainage, or sails to propel ships.
Energy available from the movement of the wind across a landscape caused by the heating of the atmosphere, earth, and oceans by the sun. (Aradhya)

Geothermal energy -heat derived within the sub-surface of the earth
Water and/or steam carry the geothermal energy to the Earth's surface.
Depending on its characteristics, geothermal energy can be used for heating and cooling purposes or be harnessed to generate clean electricity (Avni)


Biomass energy is energy generated or produced by living or once-living organisms. The most common biomass materials used for energy are plants, such as corn and soy, above. The energy from these organisms can be burned to create heat or converted into electricity.(Aryan)


Tidal energy is generated from converting energy from the force tides into power and its production is considered more predictable compared to wind energy Tidal energy harnesses the power of ocean tides to generate electricity. Some tidal energy projects use the moving tides to turn the blades of a turbine.
The power created through tidal generators is generally environmental friendly and causes less impact on established ecosystems(Aradhya)
