Energy

Conservation of energy refers to the entire process in which the use of energy is monitored and that there is a process of regeneration of the energy. The overall intention is that the energy being a non renewable resource must not be used in such a manner that the future generations are deprived of the use of the same.

In addition to the same there must be efforts to use renewable sources of energy in place of non renewable sources so that there is better development of the overall lifestyle of the people of the country and the energy is not depleted at any time (Elkana, Y, 1974).

Fossil Fuel – Fossil fuel is a renewable source of energy and the same can be very easily used for the generation of the power and energy. It is very easy to generate the same in rural parts. However this is criticised on the point of high pollution content in the generation of energy (Challoner, J, 1993).
