    Renewable sources of energy are those that can be replenished naturally and are virtually inexhaustible. Here are some examples of renewable sources of energy:

    Solar Energy: Solar power harnesses energy from the sun through photovoltaic (PV) cells or concentrated solar power (CSP) systems. It is widely used for generating electricity and heating water.

    Wind Energy: Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy of wind into electrical energy. Wind farms, often located in windy areas or offshore, are increasingly common sources of electricity.

    Hydropower: Energy from flowing or falling water is converted into electricity through hydropower plants. It involves damming a river to create a reservoir, and water is released to drive turbines.

    Geothermal Energy: Geothermal power utilizes heat from within the Earth to generate electricity or provide heating and cooling. It involves tapping into natural steam or hot water reservoirs underground.

    Biomass Energy: Biomass refers to organic matter like plants and waste materials. Biomass can be converted into biofuels or burned directly to generate heat or electricity. Examples include wood pellets, agricultural residues, and biogas from organic waste
