Since the dawn of humanity, people have used sources of power to survive. The demand for power has been growing at a rapid rate and has overtaken the supply, leading to power shortages despite manifold growth in power generation over the years. Currently only about 16% of global energy consumption comes from renewable resources, with 10% of all energy from traditional biomass which is mainly used for heating, and 3.4% from hydroelectricity. Wind, solar, geothermal, and bio-fuels account for another 2.6%. These figures are projected to continue to grow strongly in the coming decade and beyond. This paper looks at different renewable energy resources, reviews their potential and stages of development across the world and in India, and advocates strongly the need to embrace this emerging technology for sustainable development in Vijayawada, the green capital of Andhra Pradesh in particular, and all human beings on this planet, in general.
