Energy security has an important bearing on achieving national economic development goals and improving the quality of life of the people. World’s dependence on crude oil will continue for most part of the 21st century but the continued dependence on crude oil is loaded against it with inherent price volatility linked to finite global reserves. In addition, global warming, caused largely by greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel energy generating systems, is also a major concern. So, there is a need to develop alternate fuels like non-conventional sources, considering the aforesaid two concerns. This paper describes about the solar energy, one of the non-conventional sources and different ways of using it to convert to electric energy.
