  • FUTURE PERSPECTIVESFOR RENEWABLE ENERGYIN INDIA By Vasudeva rao
  • Introduction India is facing an severe energy scarcity which is holding back its industrial growth and economic progress. Thus, it is essential to tackle the energy crisis through utilization of the renewable energy resources. Apart from the energy supply, renewable resources will help India in mitigating climate change. India is heavily dependent on fossil fuels for its energy needs. Most of the power generation is carried out by coal and mineral oil-based power plants which contribute heavily to greenhouse gases emission.
  • ENERGY SCARCITY The energy requirement in India is around 996 TWh (113544 MW),but energy availability is around 821 TWh (93594MW) only. India suffers persistent energy shortage with demand-supply gap revolving around 18% of total power supply. This calculation according to forecast plans on 2011-12 by government of India.
  • Energy shortage effecting economicgrowth of our country by Leading to power holidays to many industries, causing economic losses to industries and man power. Less power hours to agriculture purpose, causing economic losses to farmers.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS India has been ranked as seventh most environmentally hazardous country in the world by a new ranking released recently on January 12, 2011. The World Health Organization estimates that about two million people die prematurely every year as a result of Air pollution .
  •  India’s environmental problems are exacerbated by its heavy reliance on coal for power generation. "More than 80 per cent of energy is produced from coal, a fuel that emits a high amount of carbon and greenhouse gases.“ According recent surveys pollution kills more than 300,000 people every year in India. The Himalayan glaciers are melting after all, according to new research released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on December 5,
  • A Glance at Energy Sources in India
  • Energy generated by state,central and private sectors
  • Conclusion There is an urgent need for transition from non renewable-based energy systems to one based on renewable resources to decrease reliance on depleting reserves of fossil fuels and to mitigate climate change.
