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.
