In today’s world, we cannot imagine only one day without using electrical or electronic gadgets. For this, electric consumption is increasing at a large rate everyday but the sources for producing electrical energy are limited. The energy sources, those are renewable, are the need for the day due to the crisis of unconventional energy resources and also the pollution caused by them. Various renewable energy resources, like wind, solar, hydro, are being used globally. Researchers are trying to identify new sources of renewable energy. In this respect, one of the unexplored forms of energy we come across is sound energy. However, sounds especially noise is a little bit unexplored renewable energy resource. Almost every product and instrument we use makes a sound. Noise is usually an unwanted sound which often creates hindrance in our desired activity. But if we can generate electricity from these various unwanted noises, then that unwanted noise can be used for a usable purpose. This present communication gives us an idea about a relatively less popular resource of unconventional energy. Through this communication, we propose to use noise for generation of electricity. Almost worthless noise can be changed to electric power and finally can be used in our various daily activities and further broader purposes.
