Renewable energy resources are among the most demanded clean energy alternatives each with temporal and spatial assessment methodologies based on certain equations, algorithms, procedures, logical rules, and generalization. They are under continuous improvement and refinement with improved innovative alternatives, which provide time savings, economic benefits, practical application possibilities, and more refined realistic approaches. The view taken in this chapter is first to expose different renewable energy sources (solar, wind, hydro, current, geothermal, hydrogen) and their environmental effects, reliability, sustainability, suitability, cost effectiveness, storability assessments, and then to concentrate on quite simple, logical, and rational as well as simply applicable innovative energy assessment techniques with simplistic fundamentals.
