      Great question.
      Solar energy would be the best.
      As far as we’re concerned it is inexhaustible, there are no dangerous side products and there is loads of sunlight hitting earth.

      Loads of the other renewables like wind, wave, hydroelectricity, biomass are all types of converted solar energy.

      I would agree that solar energy is probably the best, but some place like Iceland or the Azores are volcanic and can get a lot of geothermal heat which is great too.

      I like this question
      The best one is the bio-fuel as it is clean, efficient, environmentally friend and very cheap. however, solar energy is very expensive and it is always available like here in Northern Ireland. on the other hand if we produce Bio-fuel from agriculture waste it will solve the energy problem.
