Green Technologies that cover Waste Combined Heat & Power, Biomass Combined Heat Power, Wind turbines onshore / offshore, Wave power, Fuel cells, Geothermal heat etc. This paper focuses on Solar Power Generation as one of the Green Technologies. Energy Storage Solutions are also under consideration covering Batteries, Pumped hydro storage, Compressed air energy storage, etc. in mix of India’s Power Portfolio. Green Technologies need to be seen holistically "Cradle to Grave" a full Technology cycle of Power Generation is perhaps the most important issue for Green Power Technologies along with new means of generating energy and energy efficiency, Including the development of alternative fuels. These go very well with the Solar Power theme. Further, the viability of Green Technologies is creating a center of economic activity around these Technologies for saving the environment, speeding the project implementation and creating new careers that will go for truly protecting the planet. Holistically the Skills required for these technologies also need an examination.
