Sustainable energy can be considered as the provision of energy which is able to meet the present needs of energy requirements without compromising the energy needs of the future generations. A sustainable energy infrastructure can even include nuclear power as an energy resource if used differently than it is being used at present.

Sustainable energy resources mainly include the renewable energy sources such as solar power, wind power, tidal power, plant matter, natural gas and geo-thermal power. Technologies used for energy efficiency may also be included in this domain. The most essential contributors to sustainable energy infrastructure are the renewable energy technologies. They play the most crucial part because of their contribution to the world energy security, the reduction of fossil fuels dependency, and also to the reduction of the green house gasses.

Acquiring a proper sustainable energy infrastructure will not only require specific changes in the ways energy is supplied but also in the approach to the ways energy is consumed. The main features, commonly called the twin pillars of the sustainable energy infrastructure are the renewable energy sources along with renewable energy technology and energy efficiency. These resources if properly developed can have a great impact in terms of stabilizing the carbon-dioxide emissions. Energy efficiency slows down the demands of energy to a great extent thus reducing the use of fossil fuels. If sustainable energy infrastructure is to be executed in a greater level then proper developments in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency is a must.

Climate change coupled with high fossil fuel prices are the main reasons for increasing government support and huge investments in sustainable energy infrastructure. With proper developments in sustainable energy infrastructure energy cost can be reduced to a greater level. Nuclear power also holds a great deal for sustainable energy infrastructure in terms of providing clean energy. Green energies such as biomass, natural gas etc can also be an effective part of the sustainable energy infrastructure.

There are many laws and policies regarding sustainable energy infrastructure. These policies and laws concern fulfillment of certain economic, social and environmental goals necessary for achieving substantial development in sustainable energy infrastructure. The laws regarding sustainable energy resources provide a legal framework that secures the development in the sustainable energy infrastructure. To conclude it will not be wrong to say that there is great hope of development through proper utilization of sustainable energy infrastructure in the near future.
