Energy is the pre-requisite for civilization said the famous futurologist Alvin Toffler. And today energy is becoming the major limiting factor in the path to development. However protoganists of sustainable development look at the energy crisis from a different point of view and conclude that this is an opportunity to radically revamp the use of energy and go for alternative technologies which necessitate change in perception of energy resources and production.
Decentralized energy production even at household level can significantly change the energy scenario of the nation.
