Question: How does water work as a renewable energy resource?

Answer: There are a few different technologies that allow renewable energy production from water. The most widely used today is hydroelectric power in the form of dams. As long as it continues to rain and the water feeds into the reservoir behind the dam hydroelectricity will continue to flow. Other emerging technologies are wave and tidal powers which rely on the wind and gravity respectively as their power sources. So as long as the wind continues to blow and create waves and the moon continues to exert its gravitational pull on our oceans these are also renewable energy sources that use water.
