We will start the ball rolling by looking at non-renewable sources of power generation.
As their name suggests non-renewable energy is produced by making use of non-renewable components, which means they can’t be used over and over again for producing energy. Typical sources of non-renewable energy are coal and oil.
The major benefit that people advocating use of non-renewable energy point out to is their easy availability. Coal and oil is mined, it is cheap as a result the energy produced by them is cost effective (at least that’s what they think, but the truth is far from that!)
The major disadvantage related to the use of non-renewable sources of energy is that it is actually “non-renewable”! Once such source of energy is finished, it’s gone forever. Given the rate of our energy consumption, it won’t be long before non-renewable reserves of energy exhaust.
Referring to renewable power now.
Renewable power is energy that is generated using natural sources for example sunlight, wind, rain etc, that are renewable (naturally replenished).
The major advantage of using this form of energy generation is that it does not pollute the environment and is renewable. Also, production of energy using renewable sources of generation can start at small scale.
A while back, the expense related to installation of renewable energy systems used to be a bit of an issue, however due to increase in demand their cost has fallen considerably in past few years.
Judging from the points put forward above, both in favor and against non-renewable and non-renewable energy, it can be safely deduced that non renewable sources of energy will not last forever and in the future making use of renewable sources of energy will not only be an alternate option to get power but will become a necessity for all of us.
