He said in the prevailing scenario , the country is in a dire need of uninterrupted hydro and solar power generation to meet the ever increasing energy demand.He said currently the country relies on expensive, non-renewable fossil fuels for power generation, which are depleting rapidly.He said fossil fuels have remained the dominant source of energy for the last few centuries.They helped accelerate economic growth but at the cost of countless conflicts and ever growing greenhouse gas emissions posing threat to our planet in the form of human induced climate change. Notwithstanding this troubling backdrop,today’s world seems to embrace a new era of a solar energy revolution, he added.
