Green energy is generally defined as the energy that comes from natural sources such as sunlight, rain, wind, waves, tides, plants, algae and geothermal heat. These natural energy resources are renewable. Green energy utilizes energy sources that are readily available, including in rural and remote areas that doesn’t have access to electricity. Advances in renewable energy technologies have reduced the cost of solar panels, wind turbines and other sources of green energy, placing the ability to produce electricity in the hands of the people rather than these oil, gas, coal and utility companies. Most common types of green energy include Wind, Geothermal, Solar energy, Hydrogen, hydropower energy, fuel cells, biomass and biofuels.
