Sources of Energy
What are the different Sources of Energy?
There are 10 main sources of energy. Solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, hydrogen energy, tidal energy, wave energy, hydroelectric energy, biomass energy, nuclear power, and fossil fuels: coal, oil and natural gas.
When people use different Sources of Energy?
People use different sources of energy depending upon the scarcity and availability of energy resources. A place where water resources are in abundance may opt to use tidal energy whereas a place like desert may opt to use solar energy.
Where we can get a high source of energy?
We can get a high source of energy from solar, nuclear, and tidal energy. Solar energy is available in abundance. However, there is a need to ensure procedures that can allow maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
Who uses all the sources of energy?
Almost all countries use different sources of energy both renewable and non-renewable sources of energy except Iceland. Iceland uses a 100% non-renewable source of energy.
Why different sources of energy important?
Different sources of energy are important because it provides electricity to people which is very important in all the field of life. Non-renewable energy affects the environment badly. It created pollution but creating energy, while renewable energy does not create pollution and also produces energy at less cost with a low impact on nature.
How are energy sources classified?
The energy sources are usually classified in conventional and non-conventional sources. Conventional sources are coal, hydro and nuclear, etc whereas non-conventional sources are solar, wind and biogas, etc.
