Limited resources and their alternative uses have motivated the world to look for other options to benefit the mankind. After Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit, another impactful summit considering nature and climate was held in France. Paris COP21 was not only attended by the Indian Prime Minister, but a number of countries also took part and pledged in the same, where Narendra Modi promised to cater almost half of the electricity needs of India, from renewable means by 2030’s end.
With the evolving solar energy, reducing costs and improvement in grid connectivity, we see an increase in consumption of renewable energy in the developing countries across the globe; specifically India, where the high adoption rate of solar power has contributed in decreasing the of the tariffs.
The willingness between Centre and State Government to coordinate with each other is attracting a lot of investors’ interest towards the Nation’s solar sector. The Union Government has what it takes to achieve the ultimate mission of Solarising India, be it policy or development agenda. With this determined will, providing 24/7 electricity across the Nation, seems possible to achieve in no time.
Looking at the increased energy consumption via renewables, the limit of energy production crossed 14 GW in projects yet to be commissioned along with the allocated ones and the ones which are in the process of being allocated. This extension has raised the stakeholders’ level of expectations.
With all these improvements and proposed plans, India still has a long walk to development via renewable energy consumption. Till then, the journey on the glittery path, shown by the Government towards a better India, should be enjoyed by all because the expedition is more beautiful than the destination, as witnessing the transformation and evolution itself is an experience.
