What do we use renewable and non-renewable energy for?

Posted by admin on August 11, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 2 Comments


I can’t find the answer to this question. Every time I try to look it up it says we should use renewable energy but it doesn’t specify what we use non-renewable and renewable sources for?
I know we mainly use it for electricity, but do we use it for anything else???
Thank you so much!!!
Do we only use renewable energy for heating buildings and electricity?? (If not, give some examples of things we create besides heating buildings and electricity with renewable energy.)

Electricity will be the main use for Renewable Energy.
Heating and producing hot water will be another use for renewable energy.
Bio-fuel is also another form of renewable energy. They use bio diesel in trucks which they make from soybeans and corn, bio car fuel (ethanol or biogas) is used as such, or mixed with fossil fuels. Look at any gas pump, most will have a sticker that says "Fuel contains up to 10% ethanol". The ethanol is made from plants, mainly corn.

    Hiya
    first think what they are –
    non renewable (coal, oil, gas) electricity, fuel for vehicles, heating. Oil is used to make plastics

    renewable (wood, wind sun) heating, electricity, building (wood),
