Unsustainable patterns of energy production and consumption threaten not only human health and quality of life, but also deeply affect ecosystems and contribute to climate change. Sustainable energy, however, not only tackles these challenges head on, but is also an engine for poverty reduction, social progress, equity, enhanced resilience, economic growth, and environmental sustainability.
Renewable energy sector is booming, as innovation brings down costs and starts to deliver on the promise of a clean energy future. In modern time, solar and wind generation are breaking records and being integrated into the national electricity grid without compromising reliability. This means that renewables are increasingly displacing fossil fuels in the power sector, offering the benefit of lower emissions of carbon and other types of pollution.
