Renewable Energy News

Renewable energy is a sector that is growing, both in terms of technological advances as well as in revenues. You can stay up-to-date with all of these developments with the daily renewable energy news email from Wiser. Renewable energy covers any form of form of energy that is captured from natural processes. Because they are natural processes they do not need to be replenished so, in theory, produce endless supplies of energy. Renewable energy can be derived from the sun, flows of water (dams etc), wind, biomass and tides. It is different from fossil fuels which are a finite resource. This coupled with the fact that renewable energy is more environmentally friendly has resulted in significant investment in research and development by both governments and the private sector. Whether you are interested in the cost of energy, its sustainability, its impact on the planet, or if you work in the industry, the Wiser renewable energy email is for you. It is free so register today.
