is a developing country with huge population. This means that the
requirement for energy and energy consumption both are high. In order to
maintain the huge demand of the population it is vital to look for
alternate source of energy which can sustain in long run.
all know that conventional source of energy which is currently being
used for huge generation of electricity and power is only limited.
Hence, it is need of the hour to bring into focus alternate source of
Alternate source of energy is defined as energy which is
provided to us by nature and is freely available. This includes wind,
water, earth, tidal and most importantly sun. While conventional source
of energy is limited in nature and is produced after several years.
These include coal, petroleum and electricity.
There are several
benefits of exploring alternate source of energy firstly it is available
free of cost to us and secondly it is pollution free. We all know that
our climate is undergoing continuous changes thanks to global warming.
major contributor to increased pollution and temperature of the earth
is conventional source of energy. The burning of coal and petroleum
produces several harmful gases like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide,
nitrous oxide and sulphur dioxide. These are very harmful gases which
are leading cause of major respiratory diseases.
diseases, these have also led to depletion of ozone layer, which is a
protective layer that protects our earth from the harmful radiations of
the sun. Due to this depletion there has been increase in the cases skin
Therefore, this is high time that we put our resources in
the right direction with renewable sources of energy. Our country has
understood the importance and is already working on it. There is a
Ministry of New and Renewable Source of Energy in Delhi which is centre
for advance technology and research in the field of non-conventional
sources of energy.
The Ministry has worked in setting up solar
panels, solar water heaters, solar cookers utilising the energy of the
sun and most recently Hydro electric car which runs on hydrogen and
electricity to give power to its engine. In addition there is geothermal
energy, wind energy and tidal energy.
So, if we want to save our
planet, it is necessary to open up to alternate source of energy which
is the future of world energy requirement.
