With the current climatic changes threatening our existence today, hence renewable energy is poised to restore hope back to the world. It is my willful desire to do masters in renewable energy engineering as this provides an excellent basis for the application of alternative energy resources that will help balance our ecosystem ones again. My interest in renewable energy engineering blossomed during my high school days, as i noticed the epileptic power supply in the country which prompted a lot of persons to purchase standby generators to help supplement the various lapses in electrical power supply in the country. It became clear to me during those days the various harmful effects that consumption of fossil fuels could have on the overall health of people.
