We often look at India from outside and just see pollution – but look closer and you will see major change is taking place.
Solar and wind energy are taking off – “An aggregate of 80.46 GW of renewable energy limit has been introduced in the country as on June 30, 2019 which includes 29.55 GW from Solar and 36.37 GW from Wind control,” according to Power and New and Renewable Energy Minister Mr R K Singh.
The government has set a focus of 175 GW of clean energy capacity by 2022, including 100 GW solar and 60 GW of wind energy.
According to India’s submission to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change on Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), a combined electric power limit of 40 per cent from non-fossil fuel-based energy resources is to be introduced by 2030.
The Ministry also told the House that a sum of 42 solar power parks with a total limit of around 23.40 GW have been approved by the government so far to encourage accomplishment of 100 GW target by March 2022.
Well done India – keep it going.
