ABSTRACT

POWER FROM RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES

The idea of electrical energy form renewable sources is not a new concept. Hydro-electric generators were among the original power generation units to supply electricity to people in the early 20th century. As the population grew the demand for cheap electrical power grew in direct proportion. Coal and oil became the fuels of choice to meet the mass demand for electricity. Now with the ever expanding world population growth and the advent to new technological devices demanding electricity, power generation from renewable sources are more important than ever. Developments in wind and solar technologies are changing rapidly and becoming more economical to use on a grand scale. Come and learn more about how these renewable technologies will play a role in the electrical generation of tomorrow. We will discuss pros and cons of the currently available renewable energy technologies including cost analysis, impact and technical specifications and issues
