Energy industry greatly impacts the lives of everyone, and every nation strives to achieve energy independence by utilizing the natural resources be it conventional fossil fuels or renewable sources. Advancements in technology has changed the landscape of the energy industry, for example the shale revolution has made US a net exporter of oil from being one of the largest importers of the commodity. Likewise, concerns about the depleting resources in the form of oil reserves, gas reverses, and ill effects of dependence on fossil fuels like coal has given a renewed thrust on researching renewable energy technologies to reduce the harmful impact on the environment as well as create energy sustainability for long term.
As per EIA the primary energy consumption in 2015 stood at 575.4 quadrillion Btu, and it is projected to grow to 813.7 quadrillion Btu by 2050. The primary energy consumption grew by 1.9% from 2016 to 2017. Of this Oil and Natural gas accounted for 57.6% of the primary energy consumed in terms of million tons of oil equivalent. Renewables (excluding Hydropower) accounted for 3.6% of the total primary energy consumed in 2017, a growth of 16.6% over the previous year.
