MY PHILOSOPHY ON ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Energy efficiency makes economic sense, as it leads to judicious use of scarce resources and beneficial effects on the environment. The use of alternative energy sources and energy efficiency are necessary pillars for maintaining the health of our environment. I am proud to be involved in renewable energy and energy efficiency research. The unique feature of energy efficiency is that everyone has a part to play in its success.
