The global focus on environment-friendly solutions is accelerating due to the impacts of the accumulative irresponsible attitudes towards environment that led to serious negative implications on many aspects of both life and economies. This inclination towards combatting climate change has been further fortified by the supportive policies being increasingly adopted by governments around the globe with ambitious clean energy goals. Further, the dangers surrounding the availability and cost of traditional sources of energy, as well as the ethical questions raised in this regard, motivated many industries to consider adopting green energy. Technological advancements are playing a role as well in proposing new tools, business models, policies, and investments that address environmental challenges added up to the decreasing costs of renewable energy resources; collectively made renewables one of the most competitive energy sources in many areas in view of the increased focus on sustainability.
