Everything in the UNIVERSE is made from energy. It can take many forms like heat, light, electricity, sound, strain, gravitational, chemical etc. Energy can change from one form to another. It can never be created nor destroyed. The total amount of energy in the universe always remains the same.

Renewable

Coal, oil, and natural gas are the primary commercial sources of energy in India. In addition, traditional energy sources like fuel wood, agricultural waste, and animal residue constitute a large part (nearly 40%) of the total energy consumption. In 1998/99, commercial energy consumption in India was estimated at 195.11 million tones of oil equivalent, indicating a 75% growth over a decade. However, India’s per capita consumption of commercial energy continues to be much lower than the global average of about 1684 kilograms of oil equivalent and is 5%–10% that of developed countries like Japan, France, and USA (World Development Report 1999/2000, World Bank).

India recognized the importance of increasing use of renewable energy sources for  achieving a sustainable energy base in the early 1970's. During the past quarter of a  century, a significant thrust has been given to the development, trial and induction of a variety of renewable energy technologies for use in different sectors. Renewable energy is seen as an effective option for ensuring access to modern energy services in our vast country. In addition, it also provides a degree of national energy security. In recent years, the rationale has been further buttressed by the environmental imperative. Local and regional environmental problems associated with the generation of conventional energy have provided a strong argument for enhancing the role of renewable energy within the broad energy development plans of the country. More recently, the Kyoto Protocol, agreed at the Conference of Parties to the Framework Convention to Climate Change, in December 1997, adds a global perspective to the environmental
