Energy comes from many sources, and to describe these sources we use two terms: renewable and non-renewable. Non-renewable energies are those that do not self-sustain naturally. Examples of non-renewable energies are coal, oil and natural gas.
Renewable energy, by contrast, is energy generated from natural resources, such as wind or solar power.
