Renewable energies are those that are obtained from natural sources that produce energy inexhaustibly and indefinitely. For example, solar energy, wind energy, or tidal energy are renewable sources of energy. They are also considered renewable when they are obtained from sources that regenerate naturally over time, such as forest mass.
One of the main advantages of renewable energies is that, in addition to being inexhaustible, they have no or low negative impact on the environment, which is why they are considered clean energies. Currently, renewable energy is a reality in our society and its benefits for the environment are more than evident.
All societies on the planet are energy consumers to a greater or lesser extent, but the reality is that most of the energy consumed comes from non-renewable sources, such as fossil fuels and nuclear energy, whose negative impact on the environmental atmosphere is superior. A noteworthy aspect of renewable energies is that they can be applied and exploited locally, which helps reduce the dependence of populations on large energy producers, favoring economic development and job creation.
