Different energy sources refers to the a variety of ways we capture and use energy. These include renewable and non-renewable sources of energy. The energy source we choose is based on a number of factors such as how it impacts the environment as well as how accessible and affordable it is.

In 2018 fossil fuels made up 81 percent of the energy that was produced worldwide. These energy sources that are not renewable can be harmful to the environment in numerous ways. For example, oil drilling can cause devastating harm to wildlife and communities. Fracking contributes to pollution of water. Coal power plants emit CO2.

Renewable energy, also called green energy or clean energy comes from naturally occurring and continuously replenishing resources such as sunlight or wind, as well as water. It’s an excellent way to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and to help the environment.

But renewable energy isn’t just about protecting the environment, it’s also about being reliable efficient, cost-effective, and efficient. That’s why renewable energy is becoming increasingly sought-after as a way to power our homes, businesses, and vehicles.

Solar wind, nuclear and hydropower are the most commonly used renewable energy sources. Solar energy is a process that converts sunlight into electricity and warmth. Wind energy is used to create electricity in many locations across the globe. Hydropower harnesses the force of water to generate electricity. Nuclear energy is based on the process of atomic fission to produce electricity.
