Solar energy will play a crucial role in securing the future of sustainable cheap energy, an industry expert has said.
Rakesh Singh, co-founder of Staten Solar, said within the coming decades, the solar energy industry could outpace growth levels of other sectors, as attention turns to renewable energy sources in the wake of diminishing fossil fuels, reports Sify.
Speaking at a workshop on Opportunities in Solar Energy, Mr Singh pointed out that a number of state governments are realising the importance of renewable energy and are offering various incentives and schemes to encourage the development of solar-based power plants.
"Wind power and solar energy are the key components of renewable energy of which solar energy would emerge as the leading source," he said. "This is because there are only specific locations from where wind power can be generated, unlike solar power."
Nick Medic, head of communications at RenewableUK, recently pointed out that public support for renewable forms of energy such as wind power is on the rise.
