Non-renewable energy Non-Renawable Energy, is energy taken from “finite resource that will dwindle, becoming too expensive or too enverionmentally damaging to retrieve, as opposed to renewable energy sources, which are naturally remplenished in a relatively short period of time. • Various types of coal are mined such asanthracite, bitominuos coal, and lignite. • Petroleum forms basis for heating oil, diesel fuel, and gasoline. • Natural gas is commonly also referred to just as gas; is it mostly methane, and most of the additional material is remowedbefore use as a fuel. • Nuclear Energy
Renewable Energy is energy generated from natural resources, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat, which are renewable. Climate changes concearns coupled with high oil price, peak oil and increasing government support are diving increasing renewable energy legislation, incentives and commercialization.

Wind Power Wind Energy is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form, such as electricity, using wind turbines. Wind Farms are typically connected to the local electric power transmission network, with smaller turbines being used to provide electricity to isolated locations. Where mind is to be used for a moderate fractions of demand, additional costs for compensation of intermittency are considerated to be modest.
Hydroelectricity is generated by hydropower, the production of power through use of gravitational force of falling or flowing water. A hydroeletric complex is constructed, the project produces no direct waste, and has a considerabily lower output level of the greenhouse gas carbion doixide than fossil fluel powered energy plants.
Solar Energy Solar energy is the radiant light and heat from the Sun that has been harnessed by humains since ancient times using a range of ever-evolv ing technologies. This technology provides electric generation by means of heat engines or photovoltaics.
