India, being a highly populated, ever growing economy with tiny, micro, small and medium industries to large scale industries and abundant manpower. On the other side, urbanization, increase in usage of transport and industrial effluents, usage of plastic is causing pollution and threat to environment. Environment taught us a lesson recently, causing pandemic in the year 2019 i,e., Corona Virus. Our focus has been shifted towards knowing the importance of nature and its protection and sustainability. Renewable energy resources like air, water, solar and geothermal power offer us the most promising solutions for rapid industrialization, irrespective of Small-Medium or Large Scale industries. For instance, India has set a target of deploying approximately 500 GW of renewable energy by 2030 with an expected contribution of 280 GW of Solar PV. This endeavor can give rise to employment opportunities for the youth and enable them to play a vital role in preserving the environment.
