Newest Trends for Renewable Energy in 2020: It’s Not Just About Solar Anymore

Posted by on June 5, 2020 in Eco-Friendly with 0 Comments

As people are becoming more environmentally aware, renewable energy is increasing in popularity. Renewable energy is constantly evolving in order to use natural resources to power homes, businesses, and machines. These positive innovations are improving the way that humans live and are improving the overall ecosystem and all things that inhabit it. It’s important to utilize these energy-saving sources in order to preserve the environment before it’s too late.

The Top 3 Newest Trends in Renewable Energy

When people think of renewable energy, they often only think of solar energy; and though solar energy is an important part of renewable energy, there are many other options. A specialist from a company that sells solar panels in Cherry Hill said that new trends in renewable energy are worth watching for as they are constantly changing. With that being said, here are the top 3 newly innovated trends in renewable energy.


1.    Wind Energy

Wind energy is a great renewable energy source, especially if you own a large piece of property, or a building that has a large exterior landscape. Wind power was originally used to powerboats and power machines, however, in the last decade, wind energy has been innovated to power a number of different things, including homes and other buildings. Previous wind energy was converted using a windmill, now, wind energy is converted using wind turbines.

Wind energy simply uses the wind turbines to convert airflow into kinetic energy that can then be used as electricity. Wind energy is a great alternative to man-made electricity, and though it is an investment, the pay off after a few months will make wind energy very much worth your while.

2.    Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is an energy that comes from inside of the earth. Geothermal energy works by tapping into hot water underground and using that heat to drive an electrical generator. Geothermal energy uses pumps that pump liquid through complex pipes to absorb the heat so that it can be used as a form of energy to power geothermal systems.

Geothermal energy is one of the most efficient forms of renewable energy and will cut electricity bills down significantly while also making a positive impact on the environment. Geothermal energy is often most popular in the western United States where there is an abundance of hot water reservoirs underground.


3.    Hydropower Energy

This form of energy uses flowing water to create electricity. A turbine will convert the kinetic energy of the water into mechanical energy which will then be turned into electricity using a generator. Hydropower energy can only be used by homes and buildings that are near large bodies of water such as dams. Hydropower energy can power a few homes, or if the body of water is large enough, it can power thousands of.

Stay Up To Date on the Newest Energy-Saving Trends

Whether you are looking to make the switch to a more renewable energy source for your home, or you want to improve your current renewable energy source, it’s important that you stay up to date on the various energy-saving options. The world is slowly making the switch to renewable energy, and it’s becoming more important to know how you can do your part. Keep these new trends in mind as you consider different renewable energy resources to incorporate into your life.
