WINDWind on onshore and offshore wind farms, pushes windmill blades around in a circle, powering kinetic energy into mechanical power.
SOLARSolar energy involves capturing energy from the sun using solar panels and generating electricity with the captured energy.
HYDROHydro-electricity refers to the conversion of energy from flowing water into electricity. This is often achieved using turbines and generators.
GEOTHERMALGeothermal power is generated from steam and water stored in the Earth. These drive turbines linked to electricity generators.
