Fossil fuels are burned to create the bulk of the energy produced globally, which depletes fossil fuel reserves and releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The continued volatility of fuel prices has sparked serious concerns about the sustainable use of fuel for future energy needs. Energy use can be made sustainable and clean by minimizing the use of renewable energy resources as opposed to the damaging gases generated during the energy production process that affect the environment. The utilisation of naturally existing solar energy has increased significantly in response to the increasing demand for renewable power. Solar energy technology is now advancing in several ways. To maximize the benefits of the solar energy system, Making the most of a solar power system requires an understanding of the technology and how well it suits the needs and kind of usage. This article examines several solar power methods that can be applied globally to provide electricity sustainably. There has been a lot of excitement in solar photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP) techniques. We’ve talked about their types, mechanisms, costs, and efficiency. While solar PV is a better developed and economically viable technology, it may be used for both small and large-scale applications. It has been observed that although CSP technology is more expensive, it offers bigger economic returns and is more fit for large-scale applications.

Keywords: Solar energy solar photovoltaic, concentrated solar power, renewable energy resources, sustainable electricity
