With the surge in pollution levels, the demand for renewable and clean energy is rising sharply across the world. Moreover, the lack of availability of large land areas, on account of the soaring population levels across the globe, is massively boosting the popularity of advanced power generating technologies that are not only eco-friendly but also don’t require large land areas for power production.
