As energy is the main 'fuel' for social and economic development, and since energy-related activities have significant environmental impacts, it is important for decision-makers to have access to reliable and accurate data in an user-friendly format. WEC has for decades been a pioneer in the field of energy resources and . Full-Text Paper (PDF): Energy Resources: Indian Scenario. A comprehensive account of the world's energy resource endowment is essential for any long-term energy assessment. Energy resources exist in different forms— some exist as stocks and so are exhaustible, others exist as flows and are inexhaustible, and a third form is based on exhaustible stocks that can be leveraged to.
Energy is a key input in economic growth there is a close link between the availability of energy and the future growth of a nation. However, in a developing country like India greater the availability of energy the more is its shortage. In spite of the increase in power generating capacity from MW in to 91, MW by. derived from the primary energy sources, for example, in the form of electricity or fuel. Primary energies are nonrenewable energy (fossil fuels), renewable energy, and waste. Nonrenewable energy resources are coal, petroleum, natural gas and nuclear, while renewable energy resources are solar, bioenergy, wind, and. Although oil, natural gas, and coal will remain the primary energy sources for the foreseeable future, a variety of resources will be needed to meet the world's growing demand. All energy sources have benefits, as well as challenges to produce, deliver, and use on a wide-scale and efficient basis. RENEWABLE. SOLAR.

Burns clean compared to cola, oil (less polluting). • 70% less carbon dioxide compared to other fossil fuels. • helps improve quality of air and water (not a pollutant). • does not produce ashes after energy release. • has high heating value of 24, Btu per pound. • inexpensive compared to coal. • no odor until added. Recent estimates and forecasts of the oil, gas, coal resources and their reserve/ production ratio, nuclear and renewable energy potential, and energy uses are surveyed. The impact of the rapidly growing economies of the highly populated countries, as well as of the concern about global warming, are presented and.
