As we all know that India is the bucket of wide range of natural resources, it has some of the world's most biodiverse ecozones—desert, high mountains, highlands, tropical and temperate forests, swamplands, plains, grasslands, areas surrounding rivers and an island archipelago. But a number of reasons, including the expanding population, the changing climate, and others, are depleting India's natural resources. The ecological changes we are experiencing are the next issue we must address. Keeping in mind the potential technology has, environmental scientists are now saving the environment with technology. It has made the world a smaller place, assisted in fighting off the deadliest diseases, and solved the most complicated problems for us.
To develop and use the available energy resources in a sustainable manner is one of the most important strategies to help save the environment. Researchers are developing new technological methods to provide energy because fossil resources like coal, petroleum, and natural gas cannot be replenished. Energy storage includes developing low-cost storage solutions for energy in the form of modern batteries and improved fuel cells. Smart grids assist in moving the generated electricity around to ensure that everyone on the network can access it. The technology includes building such grids and working on their maintenance.
Sustainable electricity generation includes generating electricity from renewable resources like the sun, wind, and the tides. Solar energy has gained tremendous impetus in recent years. Following its lead, people are finding innovative ways to use tidal and wind energy for cleaner power sources. Today, technology is frequently employed to save wildlife as well. For example, conservation drones are used to track and monitor wild forest regions for any natural disasters like forest fires that could kill animals, such as smart collars embedded with GPS, metres, and sensors to track endangered species like rhinos and elephants. Remote monitoring of wildlife sounds and noises is also used to detect any predator harm or natural distress.
There are a lot of other ways to contribute to the preservation of the environment with technology. Most of these applications are widely used and have brought about significant changes. We people, if we get united, will not only conserve the precious resources available widely in India, thus also help in securing the future.
