Energy is one of the basic needs of humans. In today's contemporary world, we cannot imagine our life without lighting, cars, geysers, and heaters etc. All these require energy in different forms. Non renewable resources of energy are the backbone the modern world as most of the energy needs are fulfilled by these. But unfortunately they are depleting fast. In future, we may have no petrol, no diesel and no coal. What are we going to do then? Then where lies our future? The answer is in "renewable resources of energy," particularly the solar energy. Solar energy since times immemorial is being used for a variety of chores. The need of the hour is to re-invent solar energy in accordance with the need of the present generation. It has various applications in the modern world particularly in the field of energy generation. Solar energy can be used to generate electricity (Photovoltaic Technology), to heat water (Solar Heaters), for space heating. The need is to go for proper marketing of solar energy and conducting awareness camps. Government also has to take positive steps in this direction so that we can ripe the benefits of solar energy, save our environment and save this planet from "Energy Famine."
