Renewable source of energy means that this source is notexhaustible by its use in producing electricity or heat (steam) ormechanical energy. An example is solar energy. Using… sunlight to produce electricitythrough special devices, called photoelectric cells, will notexhaust sunlight coming to earth. Fossil fuels like oil, gas, and coal are examples of nonrenewablesources of energy as they are exhausted by their use.
No it's not because baterries run out of energy some or other time !
No, coal took many millions of years to form, which makes itdefinitely non-renewable. That's because when it's all used up,there would be a long wait for more coal to form.
Five sources of non-renewable energy: . Coal . Oil . Natural gas . Nuclear (uranium) . Rainforest timber
A renewable source of energy is something that is being continually replaced faster than we use it up. A renewable fuel can be replaced. This would include biomass, you crop… it and next season you grow another crop. A renewable source is one that can be used over and over without it running out. . Solar energy is considered a renewable source of energy because the sun's energy is continuous. (Note that the rest of this list are all forms of solar power.) . Wind Power . Water Power (Hydro-electricity from dammed rivers, tidal streams and ocean waves) . Thermal Power from the earth (Geothermal: Using the earth's heat to generate electricity) . Thermal Power from the ocean . Biomass, the burning of plant material, is a renewable resource. Even though the burning puts carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, it is recently absorbed CO2, so it is part of the natural carbon cycle. It also prevents a much greater amount of methane being released by the decomposing vegetation, so it is rated as positive. A non-renewable source of energy is something that is not being replaced as we consume it. Fossil fuels cannot be replaced, as they took millions of years to be formed. . Oil is a good example of a non-renewable resource. It is used to make gasoline and other fuels, as well as generating electricity. . Coal is non-renewable. . Natural gas is non-renewable. . Peat is non-renewable. . Uranium is non-renewable.
Trees are renewable. You can grow a tree. Coal is not it is a fossil fuel.
Another source of renewable energy is biomass fuel, hydro power which generates elecricity using dams and rivers etc, wind energy using turbines to generate electricty, solar …power which absorbs energy from the sun to heat water and generate electricty.

Wind, water, solar and other renewable sources of power can all be harnessed to generate electricity.
Over 85% of the energy used in the world is from non-renewable supplies. Most developed nations are dependent on non-renewable energy sources such as fossil fuels (coal and oi…l) and nuclear power. These sources are called non-renewable because they cannot be renewed or regenerated quickly enough to keep pace with their use.
Hydroelectric, wind, solar, geothermal, wave, tidal, biomass, and biofuel.
There are may kinds of renewable energy, such as solar, wind, or water.
Renewable sources of energy are soil,water,forests,plants,animals.sun,wind,wave,biomass,geothermal,tidal waves,air,corn,leather,wood,plywood,sugarcane
