Energy

Energy generation and consumption are considered as the key indicators for growth and development. This, in turn, has direct and indirect implications on environment. Making available clean energy on sustainable basis, therefore, is a major global challenge for which using renewable sources of energy and enhancing energy efficiency are considered to be most important. Conserving fossil fuels and saving energy would significantly help for conserving and saving the environment.
