  • Hydroelectric power (hydro) is classed as renewable energy due to the fact that it relies on the Earth's natural water cycle's kinetic energy to generate electricity.
  •  The damming of water is one of the oldest forms of renewable energy harnessed by mankind. 
  • The energy from the Sun and subsequently converting it into electricity is known as Solar Energy.
  • Wind power or wind energy describes the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity.
  • This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or can be converted into electricity by a generator.
