As a scientific affiliation that explores any and every area relating to Christian faith and science, ASA members should proactively face the challenges of determining sound energy policies, practicing energy conservation, and developing renewable energy sources. The mandate God has given us, to be good stewards, should be an imperative for seeking after every avenue leading to a sustainable future for humankind. Five significant converging trends have enhanced the penetration of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the world market. This, in itself, should give us an impetus to utilize energy resources such as solar power, water, wind, and biomass in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.
