1.2.2 Comparing Energy Resources

Comparing Energy Resources

  • Each energy resource has various advantages and disadvantages associated with it
  • A renewable energy resource is one that is replenished at a faster rate than the rate at which it is being used
    • As a result of this, renewable energy resources cannot run out
  • A reliable energy resource is one that can produce energy at any time

  • The table below shows a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of the different energy resources:
