Introduction
Today's electricity solutions are not renewable. For example, the uranium used in nuclear plants is not bottomless, and moreoverit contaminates tremendously.

Indeed, the created waste is not recyclable and must be buried.

So, we need to change our behavior and to have better electricity solutions with which the Earthwould be preserved.

Solar energy
We can use solar energy to produce electricity. Installation of photovoltaic panels. Captors are very expensive.But energy is free. renewable, clean, and produces no greenhouse gas emissions.

Wind power
-

conversion of wind energy into electricity, using wind turbines plentiful, renewable, widelydistributed, clean, and produces no greenhouse gas emissions. non-dispatchable : all of the available output must be taken when it is available Other resources must be used to match supply with demandnegligible fuel costs and relatively low maintenance costs

Hydroeletricity
Use dam to keep water who activate turbines to produce electricity. Green, clean and renewabletechnology. Good solution but huge construction in moutains. For construction and maintenance, big costs and important greenhouse gas emissions

Geothermal power
-

power extracted from heat stored inthe earth cost effective, reliable, and environmentally friendly, but has historically been limited to areas near tectonic plate boundaries

-

especially used for home heating because it's moreefficient than electricity generation release greenhouse gases trapped deep within the earth, but these emissions are less pleating than those of conventional fossil fuels

-

-

requires no fuelbut capital costs tend to be high
