Green Energy is becoming an important component for all individuals and governments of the world. According to the Brundtland Commission Report (Our Common Future, 1987) of the United Nations, “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Green Energy is widely considered to be sustainable energy/ re-newable energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In the global movement of Green Energy Sustainable Renewable Energy, most of the countries decided to be a part of this movement to save our planet and future generation. This effort is supported by 11 international authors who are experts in their respective fields. The output is this book, Green Energy, comprised of six chapters.

The first chapter discusses how global temperature can be controlled with the help of technology. Chapter Two explains the costs and benefits of green houses. The third chapter discusses biofuels, and the fourth chapter discusses technical feasibility of Renewable Electricity Generation in Nunavut. Chapter Five presents a summary of 15 years of a grass root project experience in partnership with impoverished, remote high altitude communities in the Nepal Himalayas. The last chapter argues that, contrary to popular belief, sustainable sources, in particular solar power, are capable of providing all the energy that Europe needs at reasonable cost.
