A Guide to Renewable Energy - What is Green Power?

What is Green energy, where does it come from and how does it actually benefit the environment? A guide to renewable energy and the sources we use.

As our dependency on energy grows larger and larger we need to curb our reliance on fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas. In many cases we can replace our usage of these fossil fuels with ‘Green’ renewable alternatives like wind, solar and hydro. It’s important we look towards renewable fuels in the future. Although we can’t change everything over to green energy immediately, there are still lots of options for us all to get involved.
