In this report, we will be discussing how to conserve energy and how renewable energy helps the country with the energy it uses. We will also be discussing the two types of energy renewable and nonrenewable energy. We will be discussing the way we can conserve energy like changing the setting on thermostat, buying energy efficient appliances and more energy efficient cars are just some of the items we will be discussing.

The first thing we are going to discussing is the two types of energy. We have renewable energy wind, solar, and biomass fermentation. They have windmills for the wind, solar panels for the sun, and crop bi product for the biomass fermentations. Some of the challenges with using and managing this alternative energy are the initial costs of get the equipment installed and the cost to maintain the renewable energy equipment.

Hydrogen and bio fuel are another renewable energy resources that we could be developing these resource more than we are currently doing. These renewable energy resources will be a major part of our future and the cost of them will be less than the cost of the non-renewable energy. They believe that if the cost for the equipment of this renewable energy were a lot lower then we would accept the use of this energy over the non renewable energy. We need to put a major effort into the development of this renewable energy.

Then we have the non-renewable energy like fossil fuels such as (oil, gas, and coal). This non-renewable energy are in limited supply and if we do not do something about another energy source then this country will be in a major energy crisis.

Now we will be discussing what energy...
