One major advantage with the use of renewable energy is that as it is renewable it is therefore sustainable and so will never run out.

Renewable energy facilities generally require less maintenance than traditional generators. Their fuel being derived from natural and available resources reduces the costs of operation.

Even more importantly, renewable energy produces little or no waste products such as carbon dioxide or other chemical pollutants, so has minimal impact on the environment.

Renewable energy projects can also bring economic benefits to many regional areas, as most projects are located away from large urban centres and suburbs of the capital cities. These economic benefits may be from the increased use of local services as well as tourism. The Biggest Disadvantage of Renewable Energy is the relatively higher cost of most forms of alternative energy compared to fossil fuel sources of energy.This has prevented the higher penetration of clean energy as compared to the non-renewable sources of energy.Also the massive old energy lobbies have successfully used their massive influence and power to inhibit the growth of renewable sources of energy.The recent lobbying by oil and gas firms like the Koch Brothers and Valero is quite pertinent.Note the oil and gas lobbies receive almost 10 times the subsidy received by clean energy sources like wind and solar despite their massive established bases.ct * It is not easy to set up a plant as the initial costs are quite steep.
* Solar energy can be used during the day time and not during night or rainy season.
* Geothermal energy which can be used to generate electricity has side effects too. It can bring toxic chemicals beneath the earth surface onto the top and can create environmental changes.
* Hydroelectric provide pure form of energy but building dams across the river which is quite expensive can affect natural flow and affect wildlife.
* To use wind energy, you have to rely on strong winds therefore you have to choose suitable site to operate them. Also, they can affect bird population as they are quite high. * The sun, wind, geothermal, ocean energy are available in the abundant quantity and free to use.
* The non-renewable sources of energy that we are using are limited and are bound to expire one day.
* Renewable sources have low carbon emissions, therefore they are considered as green and environment friendly.
* Renewable helps in stimulating the economy and creating job opportunities. The money that is used to build these plants can provide jobs to thousands to lakhs of people.
* You don't have to rely on any third country for the supply of renewable sources as in case of non-renewable sources.
* Renewable sources can cost less than consuming the local electrical supply. In the long run, the prices of electricity are expected to soar since they are based on the prices of crude oil, so renewable sources can cut your electricity bills.
* Various tax incentives in the form of tax waivers, credit deductions are available for individuals and businesses who want to go green. There are a few major advantages with non-renewable energy. Fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas are abundant in Australia so this means they are a relatively cheap fuel and readily available. Australia has enough fossil fuel resources to last for hundreds of years. Also very large amounts of electricity can be generated from fossil fuels. Advantages of non-renewable resources Non-Renewable energy is energy which is taken from the sources that are available on the earth in limited quantity and will vanish fifty-sixty years from now. Non-renewable sources are not environmental friendly and can have serious affect on our health. They are called non-renewable because they cannot be re-generated within a short span of time. Non-renewable sources exist in the form of fossil fuels, natural gas, oil and coal.
Primary of the disadvantages of non renewable energy resources is that they have a very negative effect on the environment when mined, processed and consumed. Coal processing plants leach toxic metals into ground water and produce tons upon tons of additional waste, while gasoline burned in combustion engines emits carbon dioxide and other pollutants, contributing to global climate change. Natural gas is mainly methane, which is twenty times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide, making it twenty times more problematic as a greenhouse gas. THE FORMS OF ENERGY RESOURCES. (social studies section) Solar - energy from the sun. Hydro - energy from moving water. Geothermal - energy from hot rocks under the earth's surface. Wind - energy from the wind. Tidal - energy from rise and fall of tides. Waves - energy from ocean waves. Biomass - energy from burning plant material. Incinerators - energy from burning trash. FORMS OF ENERGY RESOURCES
(social studies section)
Mechanical energy includes potential and kinetic. Potential energy is the energy that is stored in a system while the kinetic is the one created from the movement of matter.
- Solar or radiant energy is generated by the sun�s light and heat.
- Thermal energy relates to the heat of an object.
- Chemical energy is the one stored in the chemical bonds of molecules.
- Electrical energy is the energy produced through the movement of electrons.
- Electromagnetic energy is the energy associated with waves.
- Nuclear energy refers to the one used in the nuclear atom�s structure. A picture of solar energy.
(social studies section) (science section) (science section) The way these energy resources are used, (social studies section) Over the last 200 years an ever-increasing proportion of our energy has come from non-renewable sources such as oil and coal. While demand for energy rises these resources are running out and scientists are exploring the potential of renewable sources of energy for the future. The history of these energy resources (social studies section) Unfortunately for the earth, we didn't just start using fossil fuels yesterday. Records of humans using petroleum can be traced back as far as 3000 B.C. with the Mesopotamians—residing in modern day Iraq—using petroleum for ship caulking and building roads. Varied records of coal being used during the Bronze Age, as well as during Roman occupation also exist.

Understanding the long history of our use of non-renewable fuel sources is needed to give you a point of reference to discuss the emergence of green energy.

Check out the overview of the history of energy below, gathered from the Energy Information Administration (EIA). a line graph on wind and solar power (math section) a video of renewable and non renewable energy resources. (math section) Coco .E. Okonkwo

Washington, D.C. 20500-0001 Dear Mr. President:

Right now I am learning about non-renewable and renewable energy resources. Our country and the world has been exhausting a lot of energy resources and we need to try to store more renewable energy resources than non-renewable resources because......
The more we exhaust non-renewable energy resources, the more it pollutes the air and our surrounding. For example: In the U.S we have exhausted about 64% or more of the fossil fuels. The more we release these energy resources to the air, it is harmful to our health. Those are the exhausting a lot of renewable and non-renewable energy resources, but for me renewable energy resources is better than non-renewable energy resources. Sincerely, Coco .E.
