Types of Energy Generation at RATCH-Australia sites currently utilize ‘fuel’ sourced from Wind, the Sun (SolarPV) and Gas.

Energy generation is the process of creating electric power from other sources of energy. Energy types include: heat (thermal), light (radiant), mechanical, electrical, chemical, and nuclear.

Sources  of energy  for electricity generation are defined as finite (non-renewable) or unlimited (renewable). 
Non-renewable sources of fuel for energy generation include:

  • Coal
  • Oil, including Shale Oil
  • Natural gas or Coal Seam Gas
  • Uranium

Renewable sources of fuel for energy generation include:

  • Solar - photovoltaics
  • Wind
  • Flowing Water – Hydro or Tidal
  • Geothermal

Other energy is created by a combination of sources or methods including:

  • Solar Thermal
  • Biomass
  • Capture of methane from decomposing vegetative or other waste matter.
  • Hydrogen gas fuel cells
