Renewable Energy

Als erneuerbare Energien (fachsprachlich oftmals auch mit Majuskel: Erneuerbare Energien), regenerative Energien oder alternative Energien werden Energieträger bezeichnet, die im Rahmen des menschlichen Zeithorizonts praktisch unerschöpflich zur Verfügung stehen oder sich verhältnismäßig schnell erneuern. Damit grenzen sie sich von fossilen Energiequellen ab, die sich erst über den Zeitraum von Millionen Jahren regenerieren. Erneuerbare Energiequellen gelten, neben höherer Energieeffizienz, als wichtigste Säule einer nachhaltigen Energiepolitik (englisch sustainable energy) und der Energiewende. Zu ihnen zählen Wasserkraft, Windenergie, solare Strahlung, Erdwärme und nachwachsende Rohstoffe.
