Climate Change, deteriorating quality of air, & subsequent urgency to increasingly shift to cleaner & sustainable energy consumption are gradually coming to the forefront of policy makers' concerns. Alarming air quality levels in many Indian cities & around the world have highlighted the deteriorating environment, & consequent high cost people are paying through negative impact on their health. Needless to say, it has triggered a desperate quest for cleanenergy. From May 7-11, 2016, Portugal made history by working only on renewable energy- solar, wind & hydro- for 107 hours. For the first time, on April 9th, 2016, solar energy surpassed energy from burning coal in meeting power requirements in the UK, when solar energy generated was 29 GWh as compared to 21 GWh from coal power stations.
