Why is renewable energy important?

Renewable energy is important because of the benefits it provides. The key benefits are:

Environmental Benefits

Renewable energy technologies are clean sources of energy that have a much lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies.

Energy for our children’s children’s children

Renewable energy will not run out. Ever. Other sources of energy are finite and will some day be depleted.

Jobs and the Economy

Most renewable energy investments are spent on materials and workmanship to build and maintain the facilities, rather than on costly energy imports. 
Meanwhile, renewable energy technologies developed and built in the country can be sold overseas, providing a boost to trade deficit.

Energy Security

After the oil supply disruptions of the early 1970s, countries have increased their dependence on foreign oil supplies instead of decreasing it. This increased dependence impacts more than just  national energy policy.
