Focus Group 2: Renewable Energy Sector

Note: The information here is a work in progress. If you have any suggestions or want to join our groups please contact the focus group facilitator. We will update this after each focus group meeting.

Renewable Energy Sector

Renewable energy is any energy source that is naturally replenished on a human timescale, like that derived from solar, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal or hydroelectric action. Energy produced from the refining of biomass is also often classified as renewable. Coal, oil or natural gas, on the other hand, are finite sources. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services.
