How the Indian government is using the energy sector to fuel India’s future
The energy sector is a key pillar of the government’s ambitious energy strategy, the Government of India (GOI) said on Tuesday.
The announcement came after the government announced the establishment of a new energy efficiency initiative to boost energy efficiency across the country.
The Energy Efficiency Corporation of India, a non-profit, is a private body tasked with implementing a new framework of energy efficiency guidelines.
The government has said the initiative will help India to meet its ambitious energy targets and boost the economy’s economic performance.
“The government is committed to achieving a cleaner and more sustainable energy future,” Energy Minister Piyush Goyal said in a statement on Tuesday announcing the initiative.
“By harnessing this unique opportunity, we will be able to deliver on the government ‘s ambitious agenda to make our country energy-independent by 2050,” he added.
Goyal said the energy efficiency framework is designed to help governments and utilities tackle problems associated with energy generation, transmission, distribution, distribution-related activities, and supply and distribution.
The guidelines also include the establishment and enforcement of guidelines and regulations on energy use, distribution and distribution, transport, power, and communications.
India is expected to generate around 5,400 gigawatt hours of electricity annually by 2030, and generate around 3.4 trillion kilowatt hours by 2040.
