Energy Ant


Non-renewable energy sources include uranium ore and fossil fuels—coal, natural gas, and crude oil (petroleum).


The energy sources we use to make electricity can be renewable or non-renewable, but electricity itself is neither renewable nor non-renewable.

Recent Statistics

Energy statistics can answer questions such as How reliant is the United States on imports? and Which renewable fuel do we use most?


Renewable energy sources include biomass, which includes biofuels, hydropower, geothermal, wind, and solar. Most of renewable energy use is for producing electricity.


Like electricity, hydrogen is a secondary source of energy. It stores and carries energy produced from other resources (fossil fuels, water, and biomass).
