Renewable energy will free the country and the world from the problem of global warming
Rajasthan has achieved the target of producing 17 GW, while Uttar Pradesh is stuck at the level of 4 GW. The story is similar in Uttarakhand (1 GW), Punjab (Two GW) and Haryana (1 GW).
India is lagging behind in achieving the target of increasing its non-fossil energy capacity to 175 GW by 2022 and 500 GW by 2030. The reason is that many states including Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana have not been able to maintain their pace on this front as per the target set. In these circumstances, it has become very important to consider how India can contribute in limiting global warming to 1.5 degree Celsius.
Telangana has achieved its renewable energy target in the southern region of the country. In the northern region, only Rajasthan is ahead in this. It has achieved the target of 2022, but states like Uttar Pradesh have not achieved even 30 per cent of their target. Both these states have a target of 14 GW for 2022.
States that are leaders in renewable energy generation are also making profits. For example, Rajasthan Renewable Energy Nigam Limited made a profit of Rs 65 crore last year due to the adoption of renewable energy.
