Solar & Renewable Energy forges ahead in India by City Tech Blogger Branden Harris

India is moving swiftly in the direction of a greener future and is on track to exceed expectations towards achieving their goals on renewable energy. According to a Climate Central article, India is the world’s third largest carbon polluter and the country has pledged to dramatically increase its renewable energy capacity and limit catastrophic temperature increases. The price of solar energy gas already dropped due to the falling of cost in borrowing money aiding in the record low prices this year. By 2022, India aims to have the capacity to generate 175 gigawatts of power from solar, biomass and wind energy.

  1. This is truly exciting stuff happening in India. Thank you for compiling recent information. It’s important that rapidly developing countries with large populations like India and China find ways to more “greenly” accommodate their citizens’ energy needs. It’s also important to think about the way constricting development to “green” initiatives affects overall nation building. Is it fair to nations that are shifting NOW, after major polluting nations or “developed countries” have already had their day and contributed massive amounts of GHGs to the environment.
