Abstract: 

Biofuels, biomass, hydroelectric, solar, geothermal, and wind make up the largest renewable energy resource group in the world. These resources are renewable and sustainable, so a statement of current reserves is generally hard to estimate, with limiting factors such as water, land and the materials required to build a facility often more important than the resource. Additionally, aside from biomass and biofuels, these energy resources do not produce a carbon footprint, except during construction.
