INDIA'S COMPLETE TRANSITION TO RENEWABLE ENERGY REQUIRES STRONGER POLICY SUPPORT

According to the Energy Transition Committee (ETC), India should not make any new investment in the coal sector. ETC is now willing to work with policymakers and redesign policies, which traditionally have been ‘coal-centric’. As per the renewable energy experts, ETC, a diverse international group that has members across the energy landscape was convened to help identify pathways for change in energy systems to ensure both better growth and a better climate. ETC is launching two major initiatives this year, one is de-carbonising core infrastructure sectors globally and other is to take the vision of transition to renewable in India TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute of India), with which ETC has collaborated in India, expressed that price of renewable especially solar has come below coal. Once the cost of storage plus renewable is below coal, it stands as the most viable option and meet demands of every person in the country. (ICE NEW DELHI)
