Due to industrializations and

population growth our economy
and technologies today largely depend upon natural resources
THE COAL DEPOSITS WILL DEPLETE WITHIN NEXT

200 TO 300 YEARS petroleum deposits will deplete in next few decades

NON RENEWABLE RESOURCES ARE VERY EXPENSIVE AND CAUSE A LOTS OF DAMAGE TO THE ENVIRONMENT THEY CAN EVEN LEAD TO

ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION
WE CAN PREVENT THE ENVIRONMENT BY USING RENEWABLE SOURCES OF ENERGY WHICH DO NOT HARM THE

ENVIRONMENT

Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat. Renewable energies are inexhaustible, clean and they can be used in a decentralised way .Also, they have the additional advantage of being complimentary. These sources will never replenish and can be used for millions and millions of years

Solar energy is the most readily available source of energy. It does not belong to anybody and is, therefore, free. It is also the most important of the non-conventional sources of energy because it is nonpolluting and, therefore, helps in lessening the greenhouse effect.

Solar energy is the fuel for future
THESE DAYS WE EVEN USE SOLAR APPLIANCES LIKE SOLAR COOKERS SOLAR LIGHTS SOLAR GYZERS

The sunlight is absorbed into the photovoltaic/solar cells. These photovoltaic/solar cells are then used to convert the sun's energy into electrical energy. These cells are non-mechanical devices that are made from silicon alloys. Most of the solar collectors resemble black, flat boxes that sit on building rooftops

Wind energy is the kinetic energy associated with the movement of atmospheric air. It has been used for hundreds of years for sailing, grinding grain, and for irrigation. Wind energy systems convert this kinetic energy to more useful forms of power.

Wind energy systems for irrigation and milling have been in use since ancient times and since the beginning of the 20th century it is being used to generate electric power. Windmills for water pumping have been installed in many countries particularly in the rural areas.

TAMIL NADU IS THE HIGHEST PRODUCER OF WIND ENERGY IN INDIA WHICH IS, 4115.8 MEGA WATTS

Wind energy may be the answer to the globe's question of energy in the face of the rising petroleum and gas prices.

Hydro electricity is another term for power generated by harnessing the power of moving water. Not necessarily falling water, just moving water. There are many famous such generating stations in the world, not the least of them at Niagara Falls and Boulder Dam.

it is cheaper than using other methods to convert energy to electricity.

It is also a clean energy source, as it does not emit any toxins.

Biomass is the most important source for energy productions supplied by agriculture. This energy is also available in the form of biodegradable waste, which is the rejected component of available biomass Biomass fuels stem from industrial processing, such as forestry and wood products, agriculture.

Biomass can replace coal in power plants because it produces less sulfur dioxide than coal.

Biomass makes up about 7,000 Megawatts of renewable electricity.

Geothermal energy is heat from within the earth. We can use the steam and hot water produced inside the earth to heat buildings or generate

electricity
Geothermal energy is generated in the earth's core, about 4,000 miles below the surface. Temperatures hotter than the sun's surface are continuously produced inside the earth by the slow decay of radioactive particles

‡ Renewable energy is natural source of energy and can replenish itself easily over short period of time. It comes from common sources like solar power, running water, and wind. ‡They are limitless and hence one can be dependent on them unlike fossil fuels.

‡It is quite affordable and can be availed to many people as an alternative for non renewable sources at economical cost. ‡Pollution free environment ‡Promotes healthy living

‡ Helps in making wise utilization of all available resources ‡Fights against global warming

The renewable sources are cost effective, user-friendly, so that they can easily beat the fossil fuels By promoting renewable energy sources we can avoid, Air pollution, soil pollution and water pollution

Country¶s Economy will increase

So, encourage the research and development activities covering a broad spectrum of possible renewable resources, as their contributions are substantial
