Abstract :

Sources of energy which are used on large scale are termed as conventional sources of energy and the energy sources which are used on small scale are called as non-conventional sources of energy. Green energy produced from non-conventional sources include Small hydro power, wind power, solar energy, biomass energy, bagasse energy, geothermal and energy produced from bio fuel. Increase in land and air pollution during the conversion of energy sources of fossil fuel such as oil, coal and natural gas have their adverse effects on environment and ecology. Depleting quality of these sources raise the question of sustainability in the long run there by compelled humanity to go in search of the other alternatives. In this context, the nonconventional sources of energy have attracted the global attentions and evoked interest among policy makers as a viable option for sustainable development. It is well known that the long term energy security of India is in peril. Two-third of electricity comes from fossil fuel, of which 53% is from coal, which may run out in next 50-100 years. And 78% of its oil and petroleum requirement being imported most of it from particular region of the world that is west Asia. India��?s per capita consumption is one fifth of world��?s average and roughly half of the 1.2 billion people are deprived of basic lifeline electric connections. The power supply is short of demand by at least 10% peaking to 15%. The rural areas, where 75% of the population lives, most of the population use the most primitive methods of fuel for cooking by burning wood and biomass. Villages get a raw deal in electricity distributions. Of the 600,000 villages in India, some 100,000 officially do not have access to electricity. Therefore, there is no alternative but to think of other alternative sources of energy and technology to accelerate the energy supply. Accelerated development of renewable energy is of critical importance for achieving the goal of security and energy independence. The stock of renewable and non-conventional sources of energy is abundantly available in India and in the world which needs research and development to make them commercially viable. Some of the renewable and non-conventional sources energy and their status have been put forward in this article. Such sources are small hydro, solar, wind and geothermal energy, etc. Govt. of India recently has put great emphasis on such sources of energy to light each and every house.
