Technology should be used for sustainability so that the upcoming generations can have at least the same paradigm of livelihood as of the present generation. The foremost concept includes to plan and use of the technologies with regard to the needs of sustainable growth. Sustainability assessments are essential prior to the relevant decisions. However, they pretence methodological problems: The problems of anticipation of prospect developments, the determination of assessment criteria, and the necessity to define sustainable development accurately enough. Technological enhancement has resulted in 2 divergent curves while one is to create a better living, the other is exploitation of the natural resources. Technology in the past and mostly in the present is used only to the benefits of current generation without assessing the effects on the future generations. With the advent of technology for sustainability, the use of technology has gone far beyond these narrow parameters referring the need to develop the sustainable models necessary for both the human race and planet Earth. However, the work is not being up to the mark and hence more effort is required in this regard. The integrative concept is shown to provide an overall framework to carry out comprehensible and, comparative sustainability means in the energy sector much more than just environmental compatibility. In this paper we try to define sustainability, and propose some quantitative measures, and identify various technologies to achieve sustainability. We also propose an action plan and a roadmap to sustain the sustainability programs.
