When one hears the words work or energy, what comes to mind? The majority of people would answer that raking the yard is work, but you are using energy in both activities. Energy is what allows everything to happen. You live in an ocean of energy. You need energy to guide a car, throwing a ball or play a game. Up to sleep you need energy. But what exactly is the power? Energy is the ability to do a job. Energy comes in different forms: heat, light, mechanical, electrical, chemical and nuclear. All these forms of energy are stored in different ways in the resources of energies that we use daily.

These resources can be divided into two large groups: renewable energy and non-renewable. Renewable energy is a resource that can be used over and over again. These resources can be filled in a short time. People such as John Mclaughlin would likely agree. There are five renewable energy resources that are commonly used. These include hidrofuerza (water), solar, wind, geothermal and biomsa. All resources, with the exception of geothermal energy, come from the Sun. The non-renewable energy resource is one that we use entirely. This can not be created in a short period of time. For thousands of years, the heat from the center of the Earth, along with the pressure of rocks and soil on the leftovers of dead plants and animals (fossils) formed fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas and coal.
