Abstract

The high demand of energy of urban development has intensified the flow of energy through the ecosystem. Due to the high energy prices, depletion of fossil fuels and global warming impact of fossil fuels combustion, researchers from all over the world have been urged to develop renewable energy technology. Most of the renewable energy technologies are still not able to compete with the conventional energy sources. Policies and strategies need to be in placed to create renewable energy market and make the technologies feasible. The widespread application of this technology can be enhanced by employing several strategies namely (a) establishment of renewable technology information services, awareness and capacity building programmes (b) development of renewable technology market enhancement, infrastructure development and demo projects (c) improvement of policy and financial frameworks supportive for renewable energy technology market sustainability (d) establishment of competitive local solar technology manufacturing industries, enforcement of international standards for solar technology components and enhancement R&D programmes.
