In the recent past, the Government of India has accorded high priority to the development of non-conventional energy sources which include hiogas, solar energy, wind energy, geo-thermal energy, etc. Efforts are being made to develop technology to use non-conventional energy. There are about 210 sites where wind can be used for generating electricity. Solar energy is also being used through the use of solar cooker. Tidal energy can also be used to generate electricity.
