Using Alternatives

Using Alternatives

A Chapter by Priya Seht

We need to shift to alternative sources of energy if we want humans to survive.

In a Third World Country like India, the most common source of generating electricity is coal and petroleum.
Due to urbanization and industrialization, the pressure on these natural resources has increased manifold. In certain states, hydroelectricity, wind energy, tidal energy, solar energy, etc are being used but majority of India lies on sources of energy such as coal and petroleum which results in pollution and wastage also.

The consequence is going to be dependence on other countries for natural resources and dearth of electricity. Many cities have been facing problems like power-cuts since long.
As there is always a solution to a problem, therefore in this case it is realizing the importance of natural resources, which can make India a superpower. Instead of extensive usage of non-renewable sources of energy we can have alternatives like solar energy, which is available in ample and wind energy in areas where it is possible. Apart from these, hydro energy can be used in an effective way as Japan uses it. These are eco-friendly techniques which can make world a better place to live in and it’s high time when we ought to take necessary steps before the future of the country goes down the drains.
