Renewable energy

The planet's greatest resource

Renewable energy is derived from resources recovering naturally. Examples of renewable energy sources are; solar energy, wind energy, and wave energy. Unlike fossil fuels, we do not run out of renewable energy sources. Renewable energy comes from sustainable sources that are renewed naturally.  

Renewable energy sources are one of the most promising options for meeting our energy needs in a sustainable way in the future. As such, they can help eliminate the use of fossil fuels, as they are less harmful to the environment and can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, one of the main causes of global warming. An additional advantage of renewable energy is that it is cheap to produce as its availability is infinite.

At UNISON, we develop renewable energy projects based on the energy sources solar and wind power.  

Independent of fossil energy

Denmark must be climate neutral by 2050 at the latest, cf. the UN's climate goals. The climate crisis shows us that there is a need for rapid reductions in CO2 emissions. If we want to limit global warming to 1.5 °C, drastic changes are required. It will, among other things necessary to switch energy production from fossil to sustainable energy production. The need for independence from coal, oil, and gas is further underpinned by the latest geopolitical challenges in Europe.

Protect the planet with renewable energy

The world's demand for electricity is increasing year by year, not least because we are working towards the electrification of society as part of the green transition. By using solar and wind power to produce energy, we can meet today's energy consumption needs without compromising the needs of future generations. Renewable energy protects the planet and makes a major contribution to fighting the climate crisis the world is facing.

Solar energy is renewable energy

Solar energy is one of the most common types of renewable energy. As the name says, generated by the sun. Solar energy can be used to produce electricity, heat, and light. It is a sustainable and environmentally friendly form of energy, as it does not emit harmful greenhouse gases or other forms of pollution.

Solar energy is produced using solar panels that convert sunlight into electricity. Solar panels consist of solar cells. A solar cell is a semiconductor that converts light radiation directly into electricity, using the so-called photoelectric effect.  

Wind energy is a renewable resource

Wind energy is another type of renewable energy. As the name says generated by wind. This form of energy can be used to produce electricity using wind turbines that convert wind energy into electricity. Wind turbines consist of a rotor with blades that rotate when the wind blows. The rotor is connected to a generator that converts the kinetic energy from the rotor to electricity. 

Wind energy is particularly suitable for producing electricity in areas with a constant and strong wind. Therefore, you often find large wind farms in coastal areas and the highlands.
