The use of energy plays a very important role in our life. The availability and accessibility of sufficient amount of energy accelerates the nation's growth. The supply of energy should be secure and sustainable. It should also be economical, environmentally friendly and socially acceptable. The rising consumption of fossil fuels, together with increasing green house gas emission, threatens our secure energy supply. Development of clean, secure, sustainable and affordable energy sources is necessary.
Solar Technology is a major frontier area of science and technology to help develop solar as a real life replacement of fossil fuels. Solar energy has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever evolving technologies. The total solar energy absorbed by earth's atmosphere, oceans, and land masses is approx 3,850,000 EJ per year. It is estimated that the amount of solar energy reaching the surface of planet is so vast that in one year, it is twice as much as will be obtained from earth's non- renewable resources of coal, oil, and natural gas combined. Since the geographical location of India is close to the equator, there is immense potential to harness this energy.The conference will provide an excellent platform to know, interact, exchange new ideas and discuss new developments and also the challenges ahead in the field of Solar Technology.
