Energy crisis is one of the most pressing issues of our century. The world currently invests more than $1 trillion per year in energy, much of it going toward the energy systems of the past instead of building the clean energy economies of the future. Effectively, the provision of energy should be such that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Investment in sustainable energy is a smart strategy for growing markets, improving competitiveness, and providing greater equity and opportunity. Sustainable energy has two key elements - renewable energy and energy efficiency. The promise of renewable energy can only be realised through significant R&D investments on technologies such as solar, biomass, wind, hydropower, geothermal power, ocean energy sources, solar-derived hydrogen fuel coupled with energy storage technologies necessary to operate them competitively. Energy efficiency has a profound effect on productivity, ensuring universal access to modern energy services, health, education, climate change, food and water security and communication services.
This book is an extended and updated version of 15 papers presented at the 3rd Triennial International Workshop on ‘Sustainable Energy for All: Transforming Commitments to Action’ organised by the Centre for Science & Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) jointly with the Society of Energy Engineers and Managers (SEEM), Trivandrum, India, and in association with the Christ University Faculty of Engineering, Bangalore, India during 22-24 February 2014 in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.
The papers included in the publication emphasise upon the need to take further action for sustainable management of energy requirements and efficient use of available resources, as well as the transfer of advanced technology to developing countries and countries with economies in transition for providing efficient and wider use of new and renewable sources of energy.

The Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) is an inter-governmental organisation set up in 1989 to promote South-South cooperation through mutually beneficial partnerships among scientists and technologists and scientific organisations in developing countries. The membership of the Centre with its Secretariat in New Delhi, India presently covers 47 countries spread over Asia, Africa, Middle East and Latin America. The Centre also has an S&T-Industry Network, of which 12 academic / R&D agencies of Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, India, Nigeria and Turkey are the members. A variety of programmes including international workshops, meetings, roundtables, training courses and collaborative projects are implemented by the Centre, which also publishes scientific books and a quarterly Newsletter. The Centre is currently executing 7 Fellowship schemes, namely, NAM S&T Centre Research Fellowship, Joint NAM S&T Centre – ICCBS Karachi Fellowship, Joint CSIR / CFTRI (Diamond Jubilee) - NAM S&T Centre Fellowship, Joint NAM S&T Centre – ZMT Bremen Fellowship, Mineral Processing Training Fellowship in South Africa, Research Training Fellowship for Developing Country Scientists (RTF-DCS) in Indian academic and R&D institutions of eminence and NAM S&T Centre – U2ACN2 Research Associateship in Nanosciences & Nanotechnology, South Africa. These activities provide, among others, the opportunity for scientist-to-scientist contact and interaction, training and expert assistance, familiarising the scientific community on the latest developments and techniques in the subject areas, and identification of technologies for transfer between member countries. The Centre has so far organised 96 international workshops and training programmes and has brought out 67 publications.
