    Yes of course. Perhaps one of the, as yet , least exploited is tidal power. The Moon isn't going anywhere just yet and so the tides will stay on time. If the turbines were rigged so that they could produce energy from the tide going out, as well as it coming in, it would give a continuous source of energy, even solar only works in daylight and there has to be a breeze for wind energy. Any coastal zone has tides and if they have any kind of a river inlet, then all the better. The question is not, are there sources of energy, there are; but which can be developed whilst still keeping the current rich, rich. It is not the means that is lacking but the willingness to change.

    In line with Rafken there is just plain hydro power, resulting from the flow of river through turbines. Also, there are biofuels, which are not totally green, but like to claim that they are.

    It is true that wind, solar and hydro power are green during the time they generate electric power. However, one must look into the entire life cycle of these generators. The production of the systems consumes a lot of conventional energy, the transportation of heavy equipment requires energy and so is end of life (recycling efforts). It is legitimate to call these resources renewable and they are indeed "greener". They are not in any way a carte blanche for us to be addicted to electrical power. Everyone should cut his electrical power consumption as a first measure.

    Solar-thermal (sun concentrators to boil liquids and run turbines)
    Biomass (like burning dung)

    Depending on your views, nuclear power can be added to this list
