Fossil energy is derived from fossil fuels. Ancient plant and biological matter has been compressed over eons under layers of earth. Much of this has become oil or coal. We then extract this from the earth and burn it for energy.
Fossil energy, as overseen by the United States, includes coal, “hydrogen and other clean fuels”, oil and natural gas.
Fossil energy is produced from the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and natural gas, all of which have high carbon content. These fuels are considered non-renewable sources of energy, as it takes hundreds of millions of years to form. These three sources alone account for more than 85% of the primary energy consumption (Petroleum=36%, Coal=27%, Natural Gas=23%).
Coal, oil and gas are called “fossil fuels” because they are formed from the organic remains of prehistoric plants and animals.
