Bioenergy is one of many diverse resources available to help meet our demand for energy. It is a form of renewable energy that is derived from recently living organic materials known as biomass, which can be used to produce transportation fuels, heat, electricity, and products.
Geothermal energy is heat within the earth. The word geothermal comes from the Greek words geo (earth) and therme (heat). Geothermal energy is a renewable energy source because heat is continuously produced inside the earth. People use geothermal heat for bathing, to heat buildings, and to generate electricity.
Hydrogen is the lightest element. At standard conditions hydrogen is a gas of diatomic molecules having the formula H2. It is colorless, odorless, tasteless, non-toxic, and highly combustible. Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical substance in the universe, constituting roughly 75% of all normal matter.
The energy landscape is evolving. Consumers and businesses are demanding more sustainable energy options and transformative initiatives. Simultaneously, electric utilities are looking for new approaches to improve grid performance and prepare for a cleaner, distributed energy future.
Electricity utilities around the world are transforming—fast. Societal and technical forces are combining to drive the rapid evolution of electrification, with a focus on service, safety, and sustainability.
