Sustainable Energy

Sustainable energy is the sustainable provision of energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Technologies that promote sustainable energy include technologies developed to generate renewable energy sources and also technologies designed to improve energy efficiency. Renewable energy technologies are essential contributors to sustainable energy as they generally contribute to world energy security, reducing dependence on fossil fuel resources and providing opportunities for mitigating greenhouse gases. Research works in produce sustainable energy are required to establish feasible technologies to produce energy sources, to carbon emissions through cost-effective means, to develop energy efficient technology as well as promoting energy education and policy.
