Renewable Energy Sources: Geothermal and Biomass

In previous post, I shared brief overview about common renewable energy sources, such as solar power, wind power, and hydro power. In this post, I want to continue sharing about other renewable energy sources, which are geothermal, biomass, and energy sources from sea (wave, tidal, and ocean thermal energy conversion).

Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is renewable and offer more advantages than other renewable energy sources, such as hydro, wind, bio energy, biomass, and wave energy. It has high degree of availability, low land use, insignificant dependence on weather conditions, and comparatively low visual impact.

Global installed capacity of geothermal power has reached 14.4 GW, with the US as the largest geothermal country so far. Read More

Renewable Energy Sources: Solar, Wind, and Hydropower

Renewable energy is increasing around the world. This is because energy from fossil fuel becomes scarce. In Indonesia, based on RUPTL 2018, government plant to increase geothermal energy source from 5% in 2018 to 12% in 2025. The percentage of other renewable energy is 0% in 2018 to 2% in 2025.

What is renewable energy? Renewable energy is generated from sources that naturally replenish themselves and never run out.

Renewable energy could be alternative to combat with climate change because it does not generate direct greenhouse gas emission. The only emission that renewable energy generate is indirect greenhouse gas emission, which are from installation, operation, and maintenance. Read More
