In this chapter, the technologies for renewable power production of today and in the near future will be described and explained. Renewable power production is electric power production without using a fuel that will end some day in the future. In this chapter, as in this book, power production based on renewable fuels (biomass) is excluded1. Some of the technologies such as wind or solar has reached industry mass production in recent years, hydro power has been in operation more than 100 years and others like wave or ocean current power have still some development to do before robust power production units are available.
