However, not all conventional energy sources are considered non-renewable, an example of this is water, which is a natural energy source and that through various processes can generate electricity in power plants, but others such as gas. , Coal and oil are also very common sources of energy and can be seen in almost every aspect of daily life, in the latter cases there is a negative side that is pollution since gases and elements are generated due to combustion toxics that directly affect the environment accelerating what is known as global warming.
It is for this reason that within what is conventional energy, the exploitation of energy sources such as water is still being investigated, although it has the disadvantage of being currently a high-cost resource but with the benefit of not being so polluting:
Examples of conventional energy:
- Gas for domestic use.
- Derivatives of petroleum such as kerosene, gasoline, diesel.
- Thermal energy.
- The nuclear energy.
