Energy, Renewable and Nonrenewable Forms (Introduction)
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Energy is power - usable power. It is the ability to do work. It comes in many different forms, such as electrical, sound, light, chemical, and heat (thermal) energy.
 
2     All forms of energy come from somewhere. We call those places sources. These sources can be sorted into two groups. The first group is renewable [ree-NOO-uh-bil] energy. That is a type of energy that nature can easily replace in a reasonable amount of time. The second is nonrenewable [NAHN-ree-NOO-uh-bil] energy. That is an energy source that can be used up. Nature cannot create more of it during our lifetime.
