Energy costs are on the rise. So there’s never been a more important time to get wise to your energy use.
Visit Energywise for tips and advice to help you control what energy you use – and control what it costs.
Commonly thought of in the context of electricity, heating, and cogeneration, Green Energy is becoming increasingly available. Green Energy refers to energy sources which are environmentally-friendly and cause little pollution. It’s most commonly associated with the production of heat and/or electricity. Types of green energy include:
- Wind Power
- (Small scale) Hydro Power
- Solar Power
- Geothermal Power
- Biomass Power
- Tidal Power
- Wave Power
No method of energy production is entirely pollution free. Green energy is recognised as having a very low environmental impact compared to other energy sources. It’s often called renewable energy as it harnesses natural resources which will never run out (e.g. wind, sun). Although fossil fuels (e.g. coal, oil) are also natural sources of energy, they are called non-renewable resources as they will eventually run out.
