On the basis of the status of development, resources are classified into four groups, namely potential, developed, stock and reserve.
|(i) Potential Resources: Potential resources are those which are found in a region but have not been utilised. For example solar energy and wind energy available in Rajasthan and Gujarat have not been developed properly.|
|(ii) Developed Resources: Developed resources are those which are estimated in terms of their quantity and quality for utilization e.g. water soil forests.|
|(iii) Stock Resource: Materials in the environment which have the potential to satisfy human needs but are not technologically accessible to human beings e.g. use of water as a rich source of energy.|
|(iv) Reserve Resource: Reserve is a part of stock which can be put to use in the near future with the help of existing technology e.g. water in dams forests.|
