lThe 10 points which i've picked up from various kind of informative books i borrowed are: 

A wind turbine is a product that converts wind energy into electrical energy that is use to distribute to the homes of people. Benefits of a wind turbine: It does not release any harmful gases into the air when powered and it is also affordable in many different countries for supplying electricity to homes, by converting the wind energy to electricity for distribution.

A hydropower is a production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water. It is the most widely used form of renewable energy. A microhydropower is a smaller version of the hydropower and is usually use in remote villages and towns where electricity is needed. Benefits of a Microhydropower: A microhydropower is able to work under any weather conditions and it also acts as a backup for conventional systems in case the electricity for that area runs out. 

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion( OTEC) is a technology whereby it converts the ocean's heat/thermal energy into electric power. The OTEC operates in such a way where it uses the difference in temperature( at least 77 degrees) between the warmer region of the water, and the colder region to produce electricity. 

A solar panel also known as a photovoltaic panel is a packaged, connected assembly of photovoltaic cells. Photovoltaic cell is an electrical device that converts light energy into electrical energy directly from the sun. Solar power does not pollute the air, it does not release any harmful gases into the air. Also, Sun and light energy doesn't cost u money, other than purchasing the item, it doesn't require u to pay for it to run. furthermore, solar panels can last a life-time and it requires very little maintenance / no maintenance at all.

Geoengineering is to make a large change to the earth's climate system with the aim of reducing global warming. Geoengineering will show results in...
