Today, the energy that is used comes primarily from non-renewable fossil fuels, but in recent years there has been an increased interest in renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy. No matter where the energy is derived from, there are benefits and challenges to its use. No energy resource is perfect—the systems of utilizing these energy sources are inefficient, they cause pollution, and impact both humans and the environment in negative ways. One thing is certain, the most effective way to avoid these downsides is to conserve energy by reducing overall use.
