Department of Energy.; Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory.;]. The prospects for solar energy and the growth of the solar industry are discussed. Some misconceptions, capital requirements, energy payback, and growth rate are reviewed.

Technologies briefly discussed in the order in which they will likely be commercialized are: conservation, passive solar, biomass, flat plate collectors for water and space. The article presents a review of the current status of world power engineering, which is focused on the development of alternative and renewable energy sources (RES).

The power resources' production and consumption tendency, as well as the evaluation of renewable energy sources usage in Russia, is analyzed. The stimuli of renewable energy sources development. In contrast to fossil fuels, renewable energy offers alternative sources of energy which are in general pollution free, unlimited, and environmentally sustainable.
