Running of car, bus, truck, vehicles and all other machines requires energy The energy for these machines is obtained by the processed fossil fuel. Fossil fuels are stored in the limited amount of the earth surface. They are nonrenewable source of energy. Continuous use of fossil fuel finishes its content in the earth surface.

In order protect fossil fuel, another source of energy should be discovered and brought into use. The other source of energy apart from fossil fuel is called as alternate energy. The main alternate sources of fossil fuel are hydropower and solar energy. Tidal energy, wind energy, and nuclear energy are also alternate sources of energy. These alternate sources of energy are renewable and they can be used forever.

Fossil fuels are prefixed fossil because their source (Carbon and hydrocarbons) was found in the earths crust. Fossil fuels are non-renewable.

In earlier times, we heavily relied on wood for all our energy source so there is highly deforestation occurs. So alternative energy helps reduce deforestation.

Alternative energy as solar, the wind or other renewable energy that can replace or supplement traditional fossil fuel sources as coal oil and natural gas.

Sources of renewable energy never expire.

Renewable energy helps in increasing income source of people by creating job opportunities.

Wind, water, and the sun are never ending source of energy and the biggest advantage of using them is they don’t harm environment in any way.
