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:
- Oil, including Shale Oil
- Natural gas or Coal Seam Gas
Renewable sources of fuel for energy generation include:
- Solar - photovoltaics
- Flowing Water – Hydro or Tidal
Other energy is created by a combination of sources or methods including:
- Solar Thermal
- Capture of methane from decomposing vegetative or other waste matter.
- Hydrogen gas fuel cells
