The energy that we consume can be classified as renewable and non-renewable. As the name states, “renewable” energy is a type of energy that does not get depleted after use. It is also sustainable and eco-friendly compared to non-renewable sources of energy. Air, Water, wind, solar energy etc are all renewable resources. Non-renewable sources of energy cannot be replenished immediately if it gets exhausted. Examples are coal, petroleum, natural gas etc. From an environmental perspective, utilizing non-renewable energy is not very efficient and is rather detrimental to the environment.
