Renewability of a system can be expressed on the basis of continued human relationship with a given energy resource i.e. the rate at which humans exploit it compared to the rate at which nature renews again. If the resource is regenerated at a higher rate than it is used, it is considered renewable, but if it is exploited at a higher rate than it is regenerated, it is considered nonrenewable. The more renewable an energy resource is that is, the faster it can be regenerated at the level it is being used, the less of an environmental impact it has. It is a matter of concern to examine energy technologies having intermittent renew ability that can be realistically increased. While an efficient use of a resource can increase renew ability, an innovation in the process of turning a non-resource renewable material into a useful resource can be more proficient. In this paper energy method has been discussed to judge the renew ability of a power production plant.
