Article: Renewable Energy for Sustainable Development and Environment
The increased availability of reliable and efficient energy services stimulates new
development alternatives. This article discusses the potential for such integrated
systems in the stationary and portable power market in response to the critical need
for a cleaner energy technology. Anticipated patterns of future energy use and
consequent environmental impacts (acid precipitation, ozone depletion and the
greenhouse effect or global warming) are comprehensively discussed in this paper.
Throughout the theme several issues relating to renewable energies, environment and
sustainable development are examined from both current and future perspectives. It is
concluded that renewable environmentally friendly energy must be encouraged,
promoted, implemented and demonstrated by full-scale plan especially for use in
remote rural areas.
