Clean energy
23 Mar 2022

refers to energy that do not contribute to the pollution of the atmosphere, and also it can be referred to renewable energy that has added benefit of lessening the risk of environmental disasters.

While all green energy is clean energy, not all renewable energy is necessarily clean or green. Recall, for example, that some large hydroelectric dams may be considered “renewable” in the strictest sense, but perhaps not green or clean, due to the environmental and social harm they can cause. Energy sources are also not typically considered “green” when their implementation involves mining or drilling operations that can have similarly damaging effects on ecosystems.
