The transition towards renewable forms of energy is unstoppable, especially as the price of energy generated by the sun continues to decrease, experts at a recent workshop informed.
Speaking at the workshop on ‘Trends in Solar Power Generation and Energy Harvesting’ at Amity University in Dubai, M. Bandyopadhyay, senior expert and administrative officer at the Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre), said that fossil fuels are a very limited resource and that renewable forms of energy are the only solution to meeting the growing demand for energy.
He explained that the NAM S&T Centre’s objective is to promote science and technology among developing countries through programmes, workshops, training courses, and collaborative projects, with the involvement of various countries. Currently, 48 developing countries have joined the centre as a member. The centre also provides over 50 fellowships each year, and its programmes have proven to be very popular.
“One of our main areas of focus is solar technology,” he said. “The main purpose of the event today is to exchange ideas relating to solar energy generation and harvesting. Our role is to encourage developing countries to create programmes for solar energy generation. For a region such as the UAE, that is blessed with lots of sunshine, solar energy is the best solution to producing a sustainable supply of energy.” Read the full article here
