The United States (U.S) use both renewable and non-renewable energy. According to Gielen, Saygin & Wagner (2015), in 2015, United States Energy consumption were:Coal-33%, Natural Gas-33%, Nuclear-20%, Hydropower-6%, Other renewables-7%, Biomass-1.6%, Geothermal-0.4%, Solar-0.6%, Wind-4.7%, Petroleum-1% and other gases-1%. Further in 2014, renewable energy sources accounted for 14.3%. The energy sources used depend on cost, availability, legislation, and sustainability of the energy sources. In the U.S, hydropower is the biggest energy source while geothermal is the least. In the recent years, there has been a rise in global warming that has led to the international community asking countries/states/nations to consider environmental safety and pollution effects in choosing the energy type they use.
