Renewable Energy Types 2017-05-19T09:55:04+00:00

There are five main sources of renewable energy

  • the sun (solar energy)
  • the wind
  • moving water (hydropower, wave and tidal energy)
  • heat below the surface of the earth (geothermal energy)
  • biomass (wood, waste, energy crops)

The GREBE project will explore the different renewable energy sources and use of energy efficiency through case studies in the project partner regions.  16 different sources of renewable energy have been selected

  1. Micro CHP
  2. Combustion
  3. Anaerobic Digestion
  4. Deep Geothermal
  5. GS heat pump
  6. Solar PV
  7. Solar thermal
  8. Wind on shore
  9. Wind off shore
  10. Tidal stream
  11. Wave
  12. Hydro small
  13. Batteries/energy storage
  14. Hydrogen
  15. Energy Efficiency
  16. Hybrid energy systems
