This paper focused on the integrated renewable energies for developing countries and also highlights on its scopes and challenging in developing countries such as India. A worldwide research and development in the field of renewable energy sources (RES) and systems is carried out during the last two decades. At the end of 2001 the total installed capacity of renewable energy systems was equivalent to 9% of the total electricity generation. By applying a renewable energy intensive scenario the global consumption of renewable sources by 2050 would reach 318 exajoules (1exajoule=1018 J) .Renewable energy projects in many developing countries have demonstrated that renewable energy can directly contribute to poverty alleviation by providing the energy needed for creating businesses and employment. Renewable energy technologies can also make indirect contributions to alleviating poverty by providing energy for cooking, space heating, and lighting. Renewable energy can also contribute to education, by providing electricity to schools.

Keywords: Renewable energies, development, education, electricity.
