# Renewable Energy

In our company SILETRA – Hidroletra we produce and sell renewable Energy (known as hydro-electric power) which comes from sources that are not permanently depleted by their use – in other words, they are naturally renewed.  This means that we extract energy from such sources, convert it into a more useful form such as electricity or heat, and still be confident that there will be energy left for future generations to use.  What’s more, all forms of renewable energy are low carbon, are they do not require burning fossil fuels to generate the electricity or heat.  As a result, renewable energy has a much lower impact on the main causes of climate change. Hydropower is the most important and widely-used renewable source of energy. It represents about 16% (International Energy Agency) of total electricity production.
