Renewable energy is a term applied to energy resources that replenish them self.

Sustainable energy is essentially the same thing, energy resources that can be used indefinitely.

The only difference to me might be the connotations, trees can be seen as a renewable resource but might not be the best sustainable option because you have to release carbon into the atmosphere to obtain energy.

Solar energy could be called sustainable energy because your not having a negative impact by using it.
