Abstract: The energy is wheel of all economic activities running in the world and main driver are fossil fuels. The fossil fuels are finite in nature; therefore, alternate source of energy is need of the day to replace the fossil fuels. Many sources of renewable energy are assessed and utilizing to drive the wheel of economic activities and third generation source of energy as microalgae has promising result and expectation. Microalgae are simple photo-autotrophs and ubiquitous. It can be utilized for production of biofuel such as biodiesel, hydrogen production. The biology and production of microalgae is the key of future expectation. Although the microalgae has many promising result but a long way has to go to get desirable products.
