reduction in the use of non-renewable energy
Explanation:

Also possible are:
reduction in the use of non-renewable fuel
reduction in the use of fossil fuel

I have seen these and other English expressions for this word combination.
"Fuel" and "energy", as well as "non-renewable" and "fossil", are very close synonyms. I believe that any of these translations can be used in your sentence.

The idea is that the plant's operations are being made more environmentally sound due to a decrease in the use of combustibles, such as oil and oil products, gas, or coal.

Best regards.
