Renewable Energy




India has 150GW of renewable energy potential, in the form of solar, small hydropower, biomass, wind, cogeneration, and waste-to-energy. Developing renewable energy can help India increase its energy security, reduce the adverse impacts on the local environment, lower its carbon intensity, contribute to more balanced regional development, and realize its aspirations for leadership in high-technology industries.

Electricity supply in India is falling short of demand that has grown rapidly.  Shortage of electrical power causes increased load shedding in rural and remote areas causing large scale problems and retarding the growth of human potential in those areas.


Low availability of electrical power and lighting in rural areas causes retarded growth due to:

  1. Reduction in effective productive working house by 25% due to absence of light in evening.
  2. Fall in educational levels as students are not able to study in evening.
  3. Effects health as people have to use kerosene for lighting. Kerosene has hazardous fumes which fill up the house.
  4. High cost of kerosene effects financially

A very feasible for this power problem is use of Solar Energy. Solar energy is clean, abundant and renewable. In fact, more energy from the sun reaches the earth in one hour than is used by everyone in the world in one year. Today’s technology and improvements to building strategies allow you to maximize the sun’s benefits. Increase the energy efficiency of your home, reduce your environmental impact and enjoy annual energy savings in home utility costs by implementing active or passive solar power systems.
