GLOSSARY RENEWABLE ENERGIES A-Z

Battery Storage: A method of storing excess renewable energy for later use.
Biofuels: Renewable fuels derived from organic matter, typically used for transportation.
Biomass: Renewable organic material derived from plants or animals that can be used for energy production.
Composting: The process of decomposing organic waste, such as food waste and yard waste, into a nutrient-rich soil amendment.
Concentrated Solar Power (CSP): A method of harnessing solar power that uses mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto a central collector, which then converts the concentrated energy into electricity.
Feed-In Tariff: A policy that guarantees a set price for renewable energy producers, incentivizing the growth of renewable energy production.
Geothermal: Energy derived from the heat of the earth's core, which can be harnessed through geothermal power plants.
Hydroelectric: Energy derived from the movement of water, which is used to turn turbines and generate electricity.
Inverter: A device that converts DC (direct current) electricity into AC (alternating current) electricity, which is used in homes and businesses.
Net Metering: A system where excess renewable energy generated by a consumer can be sold back to the grid.
Offshore Wind: Wind turbines located in bodies of water, typically in coastal areas, which can generate large amounts of electricity.
Photovoltaic (PV): The process of converting solar energy into electricity through the use of solar panels.
Solar: Energy derived from the sun's rays, which can be harnessed through solar panels or concentrators.
Sustainability: The ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
Tidal: Energy derived from the rise and fall of the tides, which can be harnessed through tidal turbines.
Wave: Energy derived from the motion of ocean waves, which can be harnessed through wave energy converters.
Wind: Energy derived from the motion of the wind that is converted into electricity through wind turbines.
