Abstract: Many people in rural society of India does not have access to natural energy resources like LPG , electricity as there is no facilitation of grid erection. Hence it becomes imperative for country like India to go for renewable energy resources as alternative to conventional energy resources. This paper evaluations the potential of different sources of renewable energy in India. It also highlights the trends in the growth of renewable energy sector, although at the same time shows that there is need of a hybrid renewable energy model for rural electrification in India. Paper also shows the scope in using the agriculture waste as bio fuel which burned otherwise and prompt health hazards besides environmental pollution, also describing many technologies which are in the demonstration stage like Tidal, OTEC, Solar thermal power plants. Many constraints put development in the field of solar and wind sector, on hold like availability of solar rays throughout the year . The main aim of the paper is to evaluation all possible options in renewable energy sector so that large segment of rural population can have access to electricity and to meet their basic energy needs.
Keywords: Renewable energy, Tidal energy, hybrid renewable energy, bio fuels etc.
Scope of the Article: Renewable Energy Technology
