definition of conventional and non-conventional energy resources
non conventional energy resources :
In simple words, Conventional Energy Sources are the energy sources which cannot be used again after using the resource OR which are non - recycleable OR one day or the other they may get exhausted. Eg: pertrol, diesel, and mineral oil. once we make use of these resources we cannot use them again. For eg: petrol we use in vehicles once used cannot get converted to liquify Pertroleum.
And for Non-Conventional Sources the defination is just opposite i.e. vice-versa. Eg; solar energy, wind energy ,etc. that is available in nature. solar energy can be used by us again and again.
non conventional energy resources:non conventional energy sources are those energy sources which are exposed to use from modern technologies advancements ; rather than the normal use of conventional fuels as energy sources like gas or oil.
Energy generated by using wind, tides, solar, geothermal heat, and biomass including farm and animal waste as well as human excreta is known as non-conventional energy. All these sources are renewable or inexhaustible and do not cause environmental pollution. More over they do not require heavy expenditure.
At present, there are several sources of renewable energy which are being tapped. These are commonly described as non conventional sources of eergy
