Energy is Ability to do work.
There are two types of energy Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy. Energy can be created in different forms such as heat, kinetic or mechanical energy, light, potential energy, electrical, or other forms. There are two types of energy - stored (potential) energy and working (kinetic) energy. For example, the food you eat contains chemical energy, and your body stores this energy until you release it when you work or play.
The energy we use every day is divided into two groups, renewable energy which is an energy source that can be used over and over again and non-renewable/ conventional is an energy source which we are using up and cannot recreate in a short period of time.
