The energy scenario in India is fast changing with the emphasis given in the XIIth Five Year Plan on non-conventional and renewable sources of energy. Though the dominance of fossil fuels, viz. coal and oil will continue in the energy sector for the next few decades, the concern for reducing the greenhouse gas emissions warrants increasing use of green energy/ non-conventional energy sources as a substitute to oil and coal. Solar energy and wind energy are major contributors of the renewable energy as these resources are widely distributed all over India and are available round the year.Geothermal energy is also an additional source of renewable energy with site specific availability and potentially consistent supply in all the seasons / throughout the year.
