Development activities till now although have brought comfort in our lives but they have pushed us to the verge of a serious threat from the environment. So there is an increased sense of caution in every new step that is taken by the scientists and engineers the world over.
As a result of our unchecked development, various natural resources provided by earth are on the verge of depletion posing the problem of shortage of raw materials. Thus it is important to fi nd alternatives which utilize resources available in abundance, for example, harnessing wind energy, solar energy, hydroelectric energy, waste biomass to create energy. Meeting the global demand for energy with these renewable resources will make a signifi cant contribution to global society and global energy issues which I fi nd an interesting area of research. I truly aspire to be one who contributes towards holistic development through whatever activity I might be doing and see to it that my work does not hamper the building of a sustainable society.
