Renewable = Wind, Solar, Hydro-electric power (dams or tide power generators)

Nonrenewable = Coal, Oil, Nuclear

A way to remember it is what can run out vs. what cannot run out.

Example: Wind will always blow and water will always run, but lumps of coal or uranium that are dug out of the earth will eventually run out.
