Abstract

India, with a population of 1.2 billion people, is one of the largest and fastest growing economies in the world. There is always a very strong demand for energy, which currently comes mainly from coal, oil and oil, is not just renewable. It is also harmful to the environment. Therefore, it is important for India to achieve the security of energy supply without affecting the booming economy, which means finding alternative sources of energy. This would mean that the country has to switch from non-renewable energy (oil and coal) to renewable energy. The Indian government has already taken several steps and launched numerous agencies to achieve its goal of becoming one of the world's leading producers of clean energy. Renewable energy is the energy of a resource that can be replaced by existing energy flows such as the sun, wind, water, biological processes and geothermal heat fluxes. These energy resources can be used directly or indirectly as forms of energy. In this paper it is discussed that the potential and technological opportunities in this direction in the context of India.
