Review of Renewable Energies, Technology, Economics Aspects and Potentials for Replacing Other Energy Sources

Authors(1) :-Pouyan Rezaie

These days, energy rules global economic activities and is considered as an input for almost every products and services. Fossil fuels, including coal, oil and natural gas, are currently the world's primary energy source. Increasing the total population of the world, improving the standards of living, and changing the people’s life style causes the total demand for energy to rise significantly so new sources of energy are needed. This paper review different renewable energy resources and provide brief economics and mathematical support for each category
