Various Features of Renewable and Non-Renewable Resources

The world and all of the workings going on in it are carried on by the mere consumption of energy. Energy is either consumed directly or converted to a suitable form for use and then used. The key force that drives any and everything in this world and the universe is nothing else but energy. Power comes in many forms and is derived from many types of resources. The importance of these energy giving resources is enormous, and thus according to the durability and availability of the energy providing resources, they are divided into two primary types, the renewable and non-renewable resources.

 

Renewable and non renewable energy

Renewable and nonrenewable energy

From the very childhood, you have heard about the renewable and non-renewable resources of energy, but in the chores of the daily life, you certainly forget the facts. But when it comes to the understanding of the facts for doing real life tasks, and when you start calculating the cost of the resources, and the renewing options for each resource, you once again start thinking about the type of these resources.

Renewable and non-renewable resources

The renewable resources of energy are those that can be obtained again and again. They can be renewed which means that their production will never stop, and they can be cultivated or generated by nature or human effort. Examples of such resources are:

  • Wood
  • Biomass
  • Water
  • Wind
  • Sunlight

The non-renewable resources of energy are those who are non-replaceable. Once used, they cannot be renewed or regenerated by any means. They are thus limited and will be finished one day forever. Their examples include:

  • Fossil fuels like petroleum, coal and much more
  • Nuclear metals and elements

Advantages and Disadvantages of using both

There are many benefits and disadvantages of using both renewable and non-renewable resources. Renewable resources are abundant and never-ending, yet they do not provide the same amount of energy and outcome which an equal amount of non-renewable resource would provide.

Again non-renewable resources are limited and will end one day, yet they are great energy providers, and a little amount gives great production of energy which is making the elimination of their use practically not possible.

The switch over is important: People have become highly dependent on non-renewable forms of energy, and thus it has become a concern of today’s generation that what will happen when all non-renewable resources are finished one day; the future generations will have nothing to sustain on. Cooking etc. on gas, vehicles on gas and petroleum and diesel, electricity on fossil fuels like coal and radioactive materials; all are examples of the high dependencies on the non-renewable forms of energy.

Since these are highly productive and efficient forms of resources, thus it’s the responsibility of today’s generation to leave back some of these non-renewable resources for the future generations so that they may use on demand. Thus, the switch over to renewable forms of energy is very much required, and people have started practicing a balanced use of renewable and non-renewable resources in most parts of the world.
