Prime purpose of this lecture is to present on Energy Matters. Renewable energy sources include: Wind, solar, wave, goethermal, hydro etc. Non Renewable Sources include: Coal, oil and gas. The universe is made up of matter and energy. Matter — anything that has mass and takes up space — is pretty straightforward and easy to grasp, but energy is a bit more abstract. In physics, energy is the ability to do work, or the ability to move or elicit change in matter.
