This category contains non-commercial, scientific and educational references to renewable energy science and engineering (technology). Renewable energies are classified by the fact that they do not permanently deplete their sources of energy. Renewable energy sources capture their power from existing flows of energy, from on-going natural processes, such as biological processes, flowing water, sun and wind.
