    This is energy that when used disspates into energy that we can no longer harnass. Oil is an example. We pull oil from the ground, shove it in a combustion engine and use the energy for machinery. After it is used a lot of it is lost in heat and some into the energy of movement. It can no longer be used as oil. Since resources of oil are finite relative to human time, once we use it all up we can’t replenish it. Renewable energy, on the other hand, is something that is not depleted by use; such as Solar energy. The sun is not diminished by capturing its rays.

    Non-renewable energy is energy that comes from the ground and is not replaced in a short amount of time. Fossil fuels, oil, coal and natural gas are the leading causes of non-renewable energy. Renewable energy is clean energy that we can use forever and over time can become very cheap like, solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, hydrogen.
