Water and forests are two renewable resources. Water which is the most essential component of our life is required for various purposes like irrigation, navigation, generation of electricity and for domestic needs, but there is a scarcity of usable quality of water in large parts of the world. Therefore there is a need to have the optimum and the correct utilization of this resource. Forests provide us with oxygen supply in the air with which we breathe and they affect the climate. They provide home to many living resources like birds and animals. The increased use of wood from the forest is causing an environmental imbalance. Therefore, methods are being adopted to plant more trees. ENERGY: A NON-CONVENTIONAL RENEWABLE RESOURCE With the increase in population, the constant requirement of energy is required. To get this energy continuous destruction of forests and environmental resources is being done. Therefore, it has become essential to think of an alternative, non-conventional source of energy. Let us discuss few of these resources: Solar energy which we get from Sun’s energy is used by plants. Solar energy is the great source for production of vegetation which serves as food and fuel for us. Solar energy can be used directly to give us hot water during winter or for heating rooms during winter. Solar cookers are used in many homes for cooking food. Wind energy can be used by windmill to run a generator to get electrical energy. A windmill can be used for the supply of electricity to a small town. Another source of energy is the wave and tidal energy in which sea water is converted to electrical energy. A natural and artificial waterfall is made to turn a modern kind of pedal wheel i.e. turbine which rotates and generates electricity. Geothermal energy i.e. hot water and super-heated steam of hot springs are used to generate electricity for heating homes or glass houses to grow vegetables. Atomic energy is generated from atomic reactors to raise stream, which rotates turbines and generators of electric power. Biogas is produced from the cattle dung which is used for cooking and to raise stream which is used for running engines or machines in the factories or for running turbines to generate the electricity. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Answer Anonymously Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
