    Renewable and Alternative Energies is focused in the description of the main renewable resources currently used and their technical application as sources of thermal energy and electricity. Today, renewable energies are also seen as tools to address many other pressing needs, including: improving energy security; reducing the environmental impacts associated with fossil and nuclear energy; mitigating greenhouse gas emissions; improving educational opportunities and creating jobs.

    "Energías Renovables y Alternativas" se centra en la descripción de los principales recursos renovables utilizados actualmente y su aplicación técnica como fuentes de energía térmica y electricidad. Hoy en día, las energías renovables también son vistas como herramientas para abordar muchas otras necesidades apremiantes, incluyendo: mejorar la seguridad energética; reducción de los impactos ambientales asociados con las energías fósiles y nuclear; mitigación de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero; mejorar las oportunidades educativas y la creación de puestos de trabajo.
