Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services.
Indian Government has launched the ambitious Renewable Energy target of 170 GW (100 GW Solar PV and 70GW Wind) of additional capacity by 2022 almost 40% of which is targeted to come from distributed generation in a mini grid/micro grid. This requires enormous capital, innovative technologies.
