Depends on how it is generated. Some forms completely destroy the environment like dams. Oil and gas production has a small environmental footprint unless there are spills and of coarse all the Co2 they release after burning.
To answer your specific question, NO form of energy generation is GOOD for the envirment, it is good for people and some forms are more envirmently destructive than others.

Renewables are sun and wind are unreliable and occupy land area whose availability is a constraint in many parts of the world. Methane or bio-gas has to be generated from bio-degradable waste and used for applications like room or water heating, cooking. Water from rains, snow melts, floods has to be captured and stored and hydroelectric power can be generated.

No. Oil and coal is best.

It has its benefits, compared to the use of fossil fuels. No denuded areas from strip mining or mountains being blasted into streams from coal. No methane coming through your water tap or increased earthquake activity from fracking. No releases of radioactivity or fish kills from nuclear power. OTOH, starting a new technology is expensive, especially if you want to avoid environmental problems, such as bird strikes. The main problem is that the fossil fuel industry doesn't want to lose billions and is willing to spend millions to keep their markets.
