1: Six Renewable Energy Sources 1. Gravitation Energy 2. Hydro-Power 3. Wind Energy 4. Solar Power 5. Geothermal 6. Ocean Thermal

2: Gravitational Energy Gravity can be a source of energy. The heavier the object, the more Gravitational energy is stored. When you ride a bike downhill, you convert gravitational energy into motion energy. This is also used for hyrdo-electric dams that hold up the water to be used for energy later.

3: Hydro Power Hydro power is energy created using water. Hydro power uses water from rivers, dams, tides and oceans. A popular way to use water as energy would be to create a Hydro-electric dam that uses water flow to create electricity that's clean and safe.

4: Wind Energy Wind energy is energy that is stored or created using the wind, mostly seen in turbines and windmills. | The wind would spin air blades, which would spin the turbine, creating clean and renewable energy.

5: Solar Power Solar power uses energy from the sun to produce electricity or to heat water. | Solar panels capture solar beams and sun rays and convert them into usable energy and electricity.

6: Geothermal Energy Uses heat deep under the Earth's crust to produced energy. | The heat collected can be used to heat water which can power steam turbines.

7: Ocean Thermal Energy Ocean thermal energy uses the ocean's heat to power turbines that use steam to produce energy and electricity.
