Abstract

Presently, the demand of energy is met by fossil fuels. Combustion of fossil fuels has caused negative impacts to the environment globally. The most significant ones are acid precipitation, stratospheric ozone depletion, and global climate change. To overcome it, sustainable, clean and safe energy policies that would satisfy the energy demand of the 21st century have to be implemented. Renewable energy resources appear to be the one of the most efficient and effective solutions, therefore be key energy sources for the future. There is an intimate connection between renewable energy and sustainable development. Current status of renewable energy applications, its implementation strategies and their obstacles for some of the selected Islamic countries has been presented. Several strategies for enhancing of widespread application of renewable energy technology are described. The strategies include establishing education and capacity building programs, creating renewable energy market and financing mechanism, improving appropriate energy policies and establishing database and international collaboration to promote renewable energy technologies.
