The study of alternative energy resources brings  in new attractive  feasibilities  such as wind and solar energy deployment thro careful  planning to avoid, minimize, and mitigate impacts using carbon emitting fossil fuels  with  increased efficiency, reducing costs, and protecting the open spaces precious for life of people

India has tremendous potential to switch to green energy options across the country in the light of its diversified economy and workforce, and all-time upcoming industries to cater for its own population as well as to participate on active international trade, through “Make in India” policy.

National policies are focussed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, creating renewable energy jobs, thereby suppressing electricity and natural gas production prices. Tremendous benefits are foreseen through combating greenhouse gas and air pollution, resulting substantial saving in energy economy in the future.
