India is the fourth largest energy consumer in the world, all set to overtake China in the next decade if the global energy consumption growth is to be believed. However, India ranks the lowest in the per-capita consumption of electricity, thus making energy paucity, a raging challenge. Governments which rose and fell from power, all proposed an ambitious energy revolution, an increase in the installed capacity in the renewable energy options, increasing import and utilization of the coal resources to fire the Thermal Power Plants, but still have been unable to improve the energy crisis.
There have been systematic efforts to develop the prospects and measure the growth of deriving energy from various non-conventional sources such as Solar, Wind, Hydroelectricity; various alternative energy sources such as Nuclear Energy, Bio Gas and Natural Gas; and lastly other unexplored sources such as Tidal and Geothermal.
