Why India Needs Renewable Energy

  • 400 million people in India lack access to electricity.
  • Access to energy is the foremost goal in India’s energy policy making to ensure economic development
  • 75% India’s electricity is produced by burning coal and natural gas
  • Rising C02 emissions emissions will lead to an irreversible damage to the earth system
  • Coal reserves are projected to run out in 45 years

To generate electricity and deliver access to the poor the government must include renewable sources in the power mix.

Investing in renewable energy would enable India to develop globally competitive industries and technologies that can provide new opportunities for growth.
