ABSTRACT
Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight wind rain tides and geothermal heat, which are renewable naturally replenished. About 16% of global final energy consumption comes form biomass with 10% coming from traditional biomass which is mainly used for heating and 3.4% form hydroelectricity while many renewable energy projects are large scale, renewable technologies are also suited to rural and remote areas
