Our hope for a brighter Future

Climate change is becoming a very pressing matter. Increased human emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases are already having widespread effects on the environment. To avoid the most devastating impacts of climate change, emissions need to be cut virtually in half by 2030 and reach net-zero by 2050 (the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change).

One way to achieve these goals is to transition to clean energy sources, such as renewable energy. Renewable energy offers a clean, reliable, and sustainable source of energy that can be used to power the future without polluting the planet.

Renewable energy is energy derived from naturally replenishing sources such as regenerative biomasses (wood, municipal waste, biomass gas, ethanol, biodiesel), hydropower, geothermal energy, wind and solar energy. Although they are often used as synonyms, green energy and renewable energy are not the same thing. Both green and renewable energy sources are in an infinite supply, but only green energy sources produce no greenhouse gas emissions or have a negative impact on the environment.

Energy produced from biomass is not considered green because its production involves releasing sequestered carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur oxides from the biomass material into the atmosphere. Solar, geothermal, low-impact hydropower, and wind are all examples of green and renewable energy, due to their non-emission of greenhouse gases and unlimited supply.
