Abstract. The recent trend in the energy sector is seeking eco-friendly and cost-effective solutions. In the last few years, the globe has given attention to renewable energy resources to overcome the depletion problems of fossil fuels and take advantage of abundant natural resources such as solar, wind, and natural gas. Renewable energy resources provide a long-term efficiency solution in different applications. This review paper comprehensively reviews recent advancements in renewable energy technologies and innovations, focusing on solar energy, wind energy development, smart grid technologies, and energy storage solutions for a cleaner and more sustainable future.
