Non renewable energy

Non-Renewable Energy

  • Energy derived from sources which are not replaced or are replaced at a rate slower then it is consumed.


Renewable energy

Renewable Energy

  • Energy derived from sources which are replaced as fast as they are consumed or are so plentiful that they are for all practical purposes infinite.
