The increasing global demand for renewable energy solutions, alongside the pursuit of competitive returns, encompasses a wide range of clean technology and renewables. These encompass various renewable energy sources, energy storage, energy efficiency, clean water, land, and air technologies, all aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution.
