Renewable energy is any energy resource that is naturally regenerated over a short time scale and derived directly from the sun (such as thermal or PV), indirectly from the sun (such as wind, hydropower, and photosynthetic energy stored in biomass), or from other natural movements and mechanisms of the environment (such as geothermal and tidal energy). While the specs for renewables are still being ironed out in this project, the upshot is that it will not in any way depend on petroleum to function.
