Renewable energy at home

What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy comes from energy sources that can be used without becoming depleted. In essence, it is energy from sources other than fossil fuels.

For example:

  • sunlight
  • wind
  • rain
  • tides
  • geothermal heat

Sometimes, the term ‘renewable energy’ is used to refer specifically to electricity that has been generated without burning fossil fuels. However, whilst it is true that renewable energy sources are primarily used to produce electricity, there are other ways of harnessing them. For instance, space heating and hot water can be provided directly from solar power or biomass, with no electricity involved. Biomass is plant materials and animal waste used as fuel.

Jersey does not currently have any grants available for the purchase of renewable energy technologies.
