A Renewables revolution

  • Published
    2nd Jul, 2022

Context

As the fallout of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine ripples across the globe, the response of some nations to the growing energy crisis has been to double down on fossil fuels, pouring billions more dollars into the coal, oil and gas that are deepening the climate emergency.

What are fossil fuels?

  • Formation- Renewable energy, often referred to as clean energy, comes from natural sources or processes that are constantly replenished.  For example, sunlight and wind keep shining and blowing, even if their availability depends on time and weather.
  • Not a new technology- While renewable energy is often thought of as a new technology, harnessing nature’s power has long been used for heating, transportation, lighting, and more. 
  • Important power source- Now that we have innovative and less-expensive ways to capture and retain wind and solar energy, renewables are becoming a more important power source.
