What is Renewable Energy?
Renewable energy is a source of power that is collected from natural resources and replenished on a human timescale, such as wind, sunlight, rain, waves, tides and geothermal heat.
In most cases, it is a source of power that will never run out. Many of these renewable energies support renewable energy technologies that in turn, aid the reduction of climate change.
Renewable energy provides power that can be segmented into four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and other off the grid energy services. These four segments produce some of the most popular technologies such as solar, wind power, and hydropower, but we can’t forget to include, bioenergy, geothermal and ocean energy.
What are the benefits of Renewable Energy?
Much is said about climate change, but it is clear that moving to more renewable energy sources will not only become a cheaper option for many Australian homes and businesses to implement but overall decrease the need for carbon-based power, which will overall reduce carbon pollution.
The Australian Government and state bodies continue to introduce and improve grant funding schemes that allow individuals and businesses to access financial incentives for energy and carbon projects. These will continue to assist the country in becoming more energy efficient by using renewable energy technologies.
How can Wattly help?
Wattly helps businesses unlock funding for energy and carbon projects from government schemes. We work directly with our customers and partners and aim to make it easier for them to comply with scheme requirements and be rewarded for their effort.
