Sustainable energy is produced using natural resources that are constantly replaced and never run out. Just as there are many natural sources of energy, there are many renewable energy technologies. Solar energy is one of the most well-known sources, wind power is one of the most widespread sources, while hydropower is one of the oldest. Other renewable technologies integrate geothermal energy, bioenergy or ocean energy to produce heat or electricity. As renewable and sustainable energy industries are expected to grow, there will  be more demand for qualified professionals to develop, install, and maintain renewable energy technologies.
