Renewable energy

Renewable energy sources are one of our ways to preserve life – life as a symbiotic connection of all biological forms and as a self-reproducing beauty. It is our obligation to protect the Earth as mother of our life.

Renewable or alternative energy sources are just one small step in this direction. Now we have the knowledge and technology to support our community with less damage caused to the body of the planet that will feed our children and grandchildren the same way as it has done it for all creatures since the beginning.

Geothermal power – from the thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth, Hydropower or water power, Solar power or energy from the sun and Wind power are forces that were worshiped as God’s ones in ancient times and they are the heart of the alternative green energy that we can use as defender of our system.


What is a renewable energy? It is the one that comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, water, geothermal heat. They are pollution-free and inexhaustible. Each day these resources are forming more and more of the global energy consumption.

WIND POWER

Wind on our planet is the movement of air caused by the unequal heating of large zones of Earth’s surface by the sun. Today, wind energy is mainly used for the production of electricity. It is a clean and renewable energy source that can produce enough electricity to supply millions of homes and facilities.

SOLAR POWER

Every second the Sun produces more power than the one mankind has consumed from the dawn of history, and it has been doing that for billions of years. The energy that comes from the sun is called solar energy. It is a clean energy source that can be used. It existed when the coal and gas were formed, when the man was born and though we use it in many different ways, there is still more to learn about the main source of power that we have.

People have used solar energy for thousands of years and, as the Sun is the foundation of our existence and the largest power-plant for our needs, we can try to raise the efficiency.

HYDROPOWER

Hydropower or water power is power that comes from the force or energy of flowing or falling water, which may be harnessed for useful purposes. Since ancient times, hydropower has been used for irrigation and as main operational force of various mechanical devices, such as watermills, sawmills, textile mills, cranes, and lifts. It is the most widely used form of renewable energy.

GEOTHERMAL POWER

Geothermal energy is the energy generated and stored in the Earth. Thermal energy is the one that determines the temperature of matter. Earth’s energy comes from the original formation of the planet.  The word geothermal originates from the Greek roots “geo”- earth and “thermos” – heat. Gaia was the great mother of all.

If you want to be a part of this changing world, if you want to help The Earth to survive or just to be independent you can make your choice now. Here are listed most of the equipment manufacturers, decision makers and organizations within the industry range.
