The Renewable Energy WikiProject project was established to organise Wikipedia Renewable energy content and to bring the quality of articles to an A-Class grade.



Ultimately this project aims to develop a series of articles which together form a logical and complete reference of renewable energies. Through collaborative efforts this project aims to:

  1. Improve the quality and organisation of renewable energy content.
  2. Broaden the scope of renewable energy content.
  3. Provide a forum to collaborate on coverage of renewable energy content.


This project was developed to enhance public awareness of renewable energies and aims to cover all topics listed under Category:Renewable energy, articles should not be limited to renewable energy generation but also include:

Renewable energy

This project does not include broader energy topics, nor does it include climate change or environmental impacts of energy. Please see the 'Related Topics' section below for a list of related projects which are running in parallel to this project.

Aesthetics & Usability[edit]

The following have been copied from the Energy WikiProject and serve as a good basis to develop fundamental guidelines for renewable energy articles:

  1. Titles: Following Wikipedia standard, article titles should relate to the best-known name in most cases. However, this is somewhat complicated by the fact that there's a lot of ways to describe the desirability or purpose of different kinds of energy: "renewable", "non-nuclear", "sustainable", "non fossil", etc. These terms should be always avoided in titles in favour of a technically specific term that implies a kind of technology. Where one technology deals with many sources of energy, be careful, e.g. a turbine can burn many kinds of fuel, but a gasoline turbine only burns that one kind.
  2. Redirects: To avoid the creation of duplicate articles, it is good to create a few redirects as soon as a new article is created. These should deal with all common variants, e.g. solar power versus solar energy.
  3. Article format: A description of the required technology, the forms of energy converted (in physics terms, e.g. light to heat or to voltage), and power output under what circumstances should start every article in this category.
  4. Navigation: Logical groupings of articles should be implemented using Infoboxes, Navigation Templates and See Also tools wherever possible. See section below on Wikipedia:Templates.


  • "LPG" or "biogas" in place of "natural gas"
  • "Renewable" in place of "green" or "alternative". "Alternative" is reserved for technologies which are either experimental or theorised substitutes.
