Expert Answer:

The conventional sources of energy are those sources that are commonly known to man or in other words are commonly used by man for meeting its energy needs.
 
These sources are coal, petroleum and natural gas.
 
Now, these sources are non-renewable because they cannot be replenished once exhausted. Hence, non-renewable sources are conventional sources.
