Review Energy-4

Which of these is NOT an example of a renewable energy source?

  1. Wood

    No. Because we can grow more trees, wood is a renewable energy source.
  2. Coal

    Yes. It takes millions of years for coal to form, so it is not considered a renewable energy source.
  3. Hydroelectric power

    No. Thanks to the water cycle, water is added to the lake above the dam, making this a renewable energy source.
  4. Wind energy

    No. Wind energy is constantly renewed by uneven heating of the Earth.
