Be Amazed at these top 10 renewable energy solutions! Algae – Though a green eyesore on the water, algae’s potential was first suggested in 1942 as a source of food and fuel. It wasn’t taken seriously till the 1970s, however, when oil prices surged due to the oil embargo, forcing the US government to look into it. Carnegie Wave Energy – Australians have taken their love of surfing above the waves to another level – harnessing the power of waves below the surface thanks to Carnegie’s CETO technology. Tidal Power – A few other ways of harnessing tidal power include using Horizontal Axis Tidal Turbines . Osmotic Power – Osmotic power is generated when salt water meets fresh water – something that happens in nature when rivers flow to the sea. Solar and Wind Power – Why use solar panels when you have to deal with the night, bad weather, and cloudy days? By putting a solar array in space, we can have unlimited access to solar power which can be transmitted to homes in much the same way as cable channels.

Human Power – While pedal power has been around for a while, foot power is new thanks to Pavegen – a company that harnesses the power of footsteps. Lava Geothermal Generators – Iceland already uses geothermal energy from its many steam vents, but in 2014, it accidentally dug directly into a magma chamber. Turbulent Micro Hydro Power Plant – Turbulent came up with a simple whirlpool turbine that can power dozens of homes using the power of rivers and canals without harming fish. Batteries – The problem with solar and wind power lies in the fact that these sources of energy tend to be generated when they aren’t always needed. Windmills – Texas prides itself on big things, but researchers at the University of Texas Arlington bucked that trend with micro-windmills .
