Can you name one type of renewable energy?
Renewable resources are sources of energy that can be replenished, like wind, solar, and water. Nonrenewable resources are sources of energy that cannot be replenished, like coal, oil, and gas. Using renewable resources is important because they help us save our environment!
Renewable vs. Nonrenewable Resources
Renewable energy is energy from natural sources that can be replaced and replenished. Examples include solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal. Nonrenewable energy is energy from sources that cannot be replenished or replaced. Examples include coal, oil, and natural gas. Sustainability is the practice of using renewable resources in a way that does not deplete them for future generations.
Which source of energy is better for the environment: Renewable or Nonrenewable?
The sun is a renewable energy source, meaning it will never run out. Renewable energy sources like solar, wind and geothermal are available to be used in any location around the world. Nonrenewable energy sources like oil and coal are limited to certain areas of the world and can eventually run out.
