Learn about renewable energy

Learn about the opportunities and benefits of renewable energy for our homes, communities and nations, and how electricity systems work.




Renewable energy

Renewable energy is energy produced from sources like the sun and wind that are naturally replenished and do not run out. 

Non-renewable energy comes from finite sources that could get used up, such as fossil fuels like coal, gas and oil.

Clean energy includes all zero-carbon energy sources, including 100% renewables, but also includes nuclear energy and technologies to reduce carbon. 

Hydrogen can be renewable if it is produced through electrolysis using renewables and water. This is called green hydrogen.
