What Are Examples of Renewable Energy Sources? - WorldAtlas

Wind PowerGeothermal PowerSolar EnergyOther ExamplesWind power is the result of different temperatures of the earthsurface when heated by sunlight. This mechanical power is harnessed when the wind is collected through wind turbines; in turn, the power is used to operate electric generators. Wind power is also useful in pumping water. Hydroelectric energy also uses air rising from the ocean (because of sunlight) to form rainfall. Hydropower is then derived from the energy of the water, which is later purposefully used. Hydropower is used for irrigation and in activating mechanical devices such as domestic lifts, textile mills, and sawmills.
