What is the Scope of Green Energy/ Renewable Energy in various sector? Shed some light on the concerns and challenges regarding this in India.

India is fast growing country and second highest population in the world. The power generation Installed capacity in India is 364 GW, out of this Fossil generation is 79.8 percent and Renewable energy is only 17.3 percent. 

As per the Paris agreement, India has committed for 40 percent of the Energy source to be Renewable energy by 2030. We have scope of about 23 percent to build the capacity in the country. 

The different Renewable energy sources are Wind, Solar, Small hydro, Biomass, waste to energy, the present wind installed capacity is 45 percent, Solar is 36 percent, Biomass is 12 percent, Small hydro power is 5.7 percent, and waste to energy is only 0.2 percent 

All the renewable energy resources are natural resources and have big potential for electricity generation. Perhaps they have different challenges.

Comparisons of costs per kilowatt hour of electricity produced show that newly built solar and wind plants are considerably becoming cheaper. In coming years solar and wind energy will compete more favourably with conventional energy generation.

Share some thoughts on the relevance & importance of Green Mobility and waste to energy technology in India.

The transport sector in India, is one of the fastest growing sectors in India, despite the recent downturn. This demand for mobility solutions is projected to increase even further.

Electric Vehicles provide a sustainable solution to meet this growing demand. Seven states in India have already adopted electric vehicle policies, and others such as in Telangana, Gujarat, have developed draft policies. Around 14 states in total have draft or accepted EV policies. India’s national policy on electric mobility, such as FAME-II, and state-level policies are putting India on the right track to rein in future emissions.
