Man has progressed from using manual energy to harnessing natural, mechanical, atomic, thermal, and hydro energy. Power generated by these sources runs our automobiles, heating and lighting systems and the machines that manufacture goods of all ranges and sizes.
Modern life is synonymous with power and it touches every one, every day, and at all times. Coal and natural gas fuel thermal power stations; diesel powers our vehicles; atomic and hydro energy provide electricity. In his quest to satiate the ever-increasing demand for clean energy, geo-thermal, tidal, solar and bio energy are being harnessed.
Water is the most precious of all resources. It enables life and nurtures it. Tapping hydro energy to generate power, managing water to run our industries and treating waste-water so as not to pollute our fragile eco systems is a necessity in today’s world. This has spawned new areas of human endeavour and initiative.
Immense opportunities exist in the form of manufacturing industries of turbines, heating and cooling systems, and power supplies. Trade and commerce in power is a high-risk but high-gain venture. The opportunities for profiting are limitless.
With the ever-increasing cost of energy, homes and offices are perennially looking for ways and means to cut down on their power consumption. Experts are working on efficient management of this costly commodity. One could use the outcomes of these research initiatives to save power and reduce expenditure.
