India Shows It’s Serious About Renewable Energy
The future of coal in India may be bleak for now because of a court ruling ending all but 4 mine allocations, but the Government of India’s hopes for renewable energy – solar and wind – ride high.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is no stranger to this form of energy generation, having hosted renewable energy investment conferences in his previous stint as chief minister of the state of Gujarat. Now, he has made his cabinet colleagues, especially his Power, Coal and Renewable Energy Minister Piyush Goyal see the light. Readers may note how that now one minister holds both portfolios, the traditional and non-traditional means of generating electricity.
