A Review on Growth of Renewable Energy Sources

Mridul Gupta, Ayushi Mangal, Saurabh Agarwal


The increasing population need to complete their requirement of energy. The extensive use of energy can’t be decline. It is our basic need to survive in the world. The classification of energy sources is renewable and non-renewable. Renewable energy is a flow of energy in the nature repeatedly for a long time or is endless, like the sun. The motive of renewable energy is to making strategies for sustainable development. Three major technological changes such as energy saving, replacement of fossil fuels, and improvement in energy production involve for sustainable development. In this we will discuss renewable source of energy which include solar radiation, solar thermal energy collection, solar thermal energy storage device and its application, solar photovoltaic, harnessing of wind energy, biomass, tidal energy, working principal of fuel cells. Application of renewable source and future of energy is also discussed.
