ABSTRACT
The article discusses the challenges in the use of renewable energy to address the growing demand for clean energy around the world. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has projected an increase in electric power generation using wind power by 2030, making it the second-largest source of clean energy after water power. The key challenges in solar energy are its intermittency and cost. The key to the success of biofuels which are predicted to grow by four percent in 2030 is discussed.
