Climate change affects the world in which we live, recognising that there’s a problem and taking practical action can help to minimise disasters including floods, drought and extreme weather that have had an impact on all of our lives.
Measures are continuing to be put in place to reduce emissions and becoming more energy efficient and aware of the energy that we use.
Renewable energy comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat. While many renewable energy projects are large-scale, renewable technologies are also suited to rural and remote areas. In 2011, small solar PV systems provided electricity to a few million households.
Renewable energy replaces conventional fuels in four distinct areas: power generation, hot water, heating, transport fuels, and rural energy services.
Renewable energy provides 18% of total electricity generation worldwide. Renewable power generators are spread across many countries and provides 18% of total electricity generation worldwide.
Most notably in China, solar hot water makes an important contribution to renewable heat in many countries, most of these systems are installed on multi-family apartment buildings and meet a portion of the hot water needs of an estimated 50–60 million households in China.
In 2009, 93 billion litres of bio fuels were produced worldwide which replaced an estimated 68 billion litres of gasoline, equal to about 5 percent of world gasoline production.
