Carbon Neutral

Describes power generation that releases net zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the atmosphere. (Fast Company, 2018)

Power generation considered carbon neutral would include (Nature.org, May 2013):

  • Wind
  • Solar
  • Geothermal
  • Micro-hydro
  • Synthetic fuels
  • Wave energy

Biofuels are not included in a zero carbon category (Study.com) because producing biofuels contributes more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than it displaces in energy generation.
