Depends. The Solar energy can be converted into electricity through solar cells. The wind energy can be converted into electricity to turn a generator. Bio-fuels can be burned to produce steam to turn a turbine, or can be burned to generate power through two different metals. Thermal heat from the interior of the earth (earth-thermal) can make steam to make electricity through a turbine, create electricity through the thermoelectric methods. The water flows through sluice gates and turns generators. In the future, we can invent micro-organisms to go from sunlight to electric.
