India and Renewable Energy by City-Tech Blogger Aayush Madaan

Over the next 10 to 20 years, it is fair to assume India would be a major competitor against China in the production of renewable energy. In addition, India’s dependence on fossil fuels will reach an all-time low. Since many people in the country are poor and don’t have electricity the expansion of many resources won’t be implemented with the thought of fossil fuels first and then the possibility of upgrading them to renewable energies; but rather India is starting to implement renewable energies and resources, to begin with, and therefore will not only stop the damage being done to the environment, but it will also help reduce its own footprint onto the environment. Also, I believe India’s economy will increase substantially leading the country to becoming a main competitor of the US and China.

  1. It is great to hear about countries as a whole actively progressing to help clean up the world little by little. Heavy pollution is something people associated with India in the past, but know there is change happening. I do wonder if they are doing anything special with their renewable energy and, if they are, if they would share it if the rest of the world. Would you happen to know if there is a certain process they are taking to clean their country? By saying it will increase their economy, I assume they have a plan to integrate the new energy into their livelihood and change how their country works. This might be a big project to undertake and may even take longer than the ten to twenty years you assume. However, I do hope they are doing all this to actually help the environment and just to make their own economy better.
