What are the disadvantages of wood energy?
Assuming you mean burning wood. Wood in the form of trees is a limited resource, and they have many other uses that are preferable to energy production. Trees, environmentally, are a huge source of habitation for many animals. Wood can be used for construction purposes. Wood, when burned, produces gasses that are harmful to the environment the same or similar to coal and oil. Wood is more expensive to convert to heat than other sources like coal or oil due to its low relative heat content. These are a few disadvantages of using wood for energy production

Asked in Renewable Energy
What renewable energy source do you use to heat the earth?
Is wood a renewable source of energy?
It depend entirely on what kind of wood it is. Most trees are reasonable fast growing, so burning wood from renewable trees is a renewable source of energy. However, rainforest trees can take thousands of years to grow and are so classed as non-renewable. So using non-renewable wood as firewood is a non-renewable source of energy.

What are disadvantages of using wood as an energy source?
I'm gonna put a few disadvantages in a list 1. Pollution. Burning things releases polluting gasses 2. Deforestation. Using a LOT of wood requires cutting down a lot of trees which can ruin the land, ruin animal habitats, and change climates 3. Energy loss due to heat. Whenever your energy source is heat, its very inefficient. A lot of the heat is lost into the surrounding environment. This is also why car engines are very inefficient.

Is fuel in the form of wood an indirect source of solar energy?
Asked in Renewable Energy, Geothermal
What are the disadvantages of geothermal energy?
The disadvantages of geothermal energy are: There is considerable implementation cost when the source is deep. Not many suitable sites. Can run out of steam May release harmful gases Not a widespread source of energy It is only practical to use this energy in places where magma is close to Earth's surface
