The instructor, Saad Ali Ahmed gave a lecture in which he identified the renewable energy as that is generated from natural non- conventional resources that are inexhaustible and need to be converted from natural energy to another one that is easy to use via modern technologies. The researcher dealt with the characteristics of the renewable energy available inmost countries and its advantages and he considered them as local sources that are not moving and consistent with the reality of the development of remote and rural areas and their needs since they are clean, do not pollute the environment, maintain public health, being economical in many applications, bringing a big return, as well as its appropriate and regular prices.
