Conventional Energy

In some cases known as fossil fuel, derived from coal, natural gas, or oil formed from decaying plant and animal materials over hundreds of thousands of years. These carbon-based energy sources are nonrenewable, meaning they will run out at some point. Nuclear power, which relies on splitting atoms to produce energy, is now widely considered conventional energy, although it is not a fossil fuel.

Renewable Energy

Generated by renewable natural resources such as the sun (solar), wind, the earth’s heat (geothermal), water (hydroelectric), or recently living plant or animal matter, such as corn or wood chips (biomass). Renewable energies are also considered alternative energies.
