Poster summary

Generating traditional or conventional energy from fossil fuels emit greenhouse gases and cause different types of pollution resulting in 7 million deaths/ yr as per WHO. Mining and Dumping due to energy production and consumption causes destruction of natural ecosystems and reduced protection from natural calamities. Minerals required for Renewable Energy alternatives are non-abundant in nature and majority non-native to Bharat making us dependent on imported fuels and crucial minerals for energy production totaling to above 80% energy import for Bharat. Traditional Solar entities have high water print, hazardous production and recycling in comparison to eco friendly Dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) developed with natural dye.
