With a limit to the available conventional sources of energy in India accompanied by a continuous increase in pressure for more energy due to rise in population each year, a shift in the focus from conventional sources to the renewable sources of energy is inevitable. The gap between energy required and energy produced will tend to increase in the coming years if our country depends only upon these limited sources of energy. This paper takes into account India's current energy scenario and forecasts India's energy situation in the year 2020. Furthermore, it clearly depicts the widening gap between the demand and supply and also shows that any attempt to fill this increasing gap with the over use of conventional sources of energy will exhaust them even before their estimated time leaving nothing for the future generations thereby preparing us by predicting a picture of India with its approximate increased demand. Moreover the paper focusses on enhancing the use of renewable sources of energy due to its large untapped potential, concern for the environment, increased demand-supply gap with population increase and pressure on high-emission industry sectors. © 2014 IEEE.
