What are Renewable Energy Sources

Renewable energy systems use sources like solar, wind and hydro (water) to generate power.

Your choice of sustainable power depends on where you live in Australia. If you live in the country, you will often have more choice as cities don't have the right conditions for wind or hydro power.

The most common renewable energy systems used for Australian homes are solar power systems and wind turbines. With both of these options, you can still be connected to the main electricity grid for mains power as you need it; or to batteries to store your own power. You might even be able to sell your excess energy to your electricity provider.

You can also support renewable energy and reduce your impact on climate change by opting to buy green power through your energy supplier. Carbon offsets, carbon neutral and abatement schemes offer the opportunity to offset the greenhouse gas emissions you emit from activities such as car and air travel.

In sunny Africa, solar energy is the energy source of today and tomorrow. And, from the north to the south of the continent, wind energy can be used. Both alternative energy sources will play a key role in the Desertec project.

Climate-friendly energy supply

Climate change, the soaring global electricity demand, the scarcity of fossil fuels and, consequently, their rising costs, make renewable energy gain in importance. Among alternative energy, wind power and solar energy are the most important energy sources, along with hydro energy. Renewables are present nearly everywhere and available without long transport. This can help countries lacking natural resources gain greater independence from fossil fuels and secure their own climate-friendly energy supply.
