Renewable Energy- Pros and Cons

We know that Hydropower, Wind Energy, Solar Power, Biomass Energy, Geothermal Energy are very good sources of generating Renewable Energy. Every discussion about Climate Change has one common topic, the Renewable Energy.

Implementation of Renewable Energy sources can considerably reduce the worst effects of rising temperature or Global Warming. This is due to the fact that the Renewable Energy sources like Solar and Wind do not emit Carbon Dioxide and other Greenhouse Gases. Carbon Dioxide and Greenhouse Gases contribute to the Global Warming.

Renewable Energy or Clean Energy is much better and can offer more job opportunities in the growing sectors. It can make the Electric Grids more resilient. It can expand energy access in developing countries and lower the energy bills.
