Renewable Energy

Green Leaf, with its qualified and professionals team of volunteers, will identify those areas where possibilities of renewable energy could be implemented at various stages. Green Leaf Trust welcomes grass root innovators like root top solar and rain water harvesting of renewable energy and their R&D, startups, technologies and helps them to build a sustainable future.

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. Renewable energy resources exist over wide geographical areas, in contrast to other energy sources, which are concentrated in a limited number of countries. Rapid deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency is resulting in significant energy security, climate change mitigation, and economic benefits. In international public opinion surveys there is strong support for promoting renewable sources such as solar power and wind power. At the national level, at least 30 nations around the world already have renewable energy contributing more than 20 percent of energy supply. National renewable energy markets are projected to continue to grow strongly in the coming decade and beyond.

The government of India, through the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has been activity involved in implementing various schemes for power generation through renewable sources like solar, wind, hydro and waste to power.
