Difference Between Renewable and Nonrenewable Energy Resources [Notes & PDF]

The main difference between Renewable and Nonrenewable Energy is, Renewable energy can be used again and again but Non-renewable can not be used again and again(It is limited energy).

Difference between Renewable and Nonrenewable Energy Resources:

Sl. NoRenewable Energy ResourcesNon-renewable Energy Resources
1.Renewable energy resources are Solar energy, Tida energy, Wind energy, Hydro energy, Biomass, Biofuel, and more.Non-renewable energy resource is like coal [Thermal Plant], oil, Nuclear, and more.
2.The energy can be used again and again.Non-renewable energy can not be used again and again.
3.These energy sources can be used throughout our life.Non-renewable can not be used throughout our life at some point it will end which is a major problem.
4.Here it has low carbon emission. Why? because the type of plants produces electricity without burning any substances.It has high carbon emissions. Because the plants produce electricity by the burning of coal and it has a high amount of co2.
The fuel used in vehicles is also burned out to produce charge and burning of fuel gives bad amount of co2.
5.These promote a healthy balance in nature.But It is not a healthy balance of nature.
6.Not major problems in the environment.Here it creates a major problem in the environment like toxic air.
7.These are present on earth atmosphere butThese are present underground layers of earth.
8.This is very cheap in nature.It is costly in nature.
9.This is also abundant in nature.But this one is scarce(Insufficient) in nature.
10.Renewable energy resources are pollution-free type. Non-renewable energy resources are not pollution-free type.
