This report in Spiegel Online is a really useful, concise description of six varieties of renewables, as applicable to Germany, each described under the headings The Principle, The Market and The Potential.

  • Wind Power
  • Photovoltaic
  • Solar-Thermal Energy
  • Hydroelectric Power
  • Bioenergy
  • Geothermal Power

Excepting the omission of wave and tidal, which are of particular relevance for the geography of the UK, the report is a really easy to understand backgrounder and reference source. Highly recommended reading.
