Renewable energy refers to the energy harnessed from a source that is perpetual and does not get depleted on use. Such resources are in abundant amount in the environment and can gratify the energy needs without causing a burden on the existing natural resources. The most common examples of renewable energy are solar and wind. Both these resources are perpetual and most importantly not owned by anyone. With adequate infrastructure, these natural resources can be utilized to generate electricity. Also, unlike coal and peat, which account for the largest amount in producing electricity worldwide, these renewable resources don’t hamper the environment by increasing the emission of greenhouse gas.
All though global warming and climate change have always been a major issue, the concern for it was officially raised in the Paris agreement in which all the countries unanimously pledged to take concrete efforts to fight against the climate change. In the convention, the countries decided to keep the global temperature rise for this century well below 2 degrees. Not just that the agreement also aims to strengthen the countries’ strength and infrastructure to deal with climate change.
Frankly speaking, it isn’t just about the agreement. It’s about what we will give to our future generation. It’s about thinking today and acting on it today. To adhere to the Paris agreement, India needs to considerably reduce its carbon emission and increase its forest cover. Adopting renewable resources will also play a substantial role in curtailing the emission of greenhouse gas.
Coal, oil and natural gas are the three primary sources of commercial energy in India. Surprisingly, India is the second-largest consumer of coal after China. Approximately 50% of energy is met by the thermal power plants and 29% of power comes from petrol and other liquids.
Slowly, yet steadily, India is striving hard to head towards solar energy and reducing its dependence on coal. According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, 31,696 MW of grid-connected solar power generation capacity has been installed in the country. According to an article published in Forbes India, India has left behind the US and has become the second-largest solar power market in the world. In the coming years, this capacity is all set to increase more. The government of India has also taken several projects and schemes to Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, Rooftop Scheme, Solar Park Scheme, VGF (Viability Gap Funding) Scheme, Government Yojana Solar Energy Subsidy Scheme and UDAY Scheme.
Adding to this, the major rooftop solar companies in India are also expanding their reach to different parts. Jakson is amongst a few players in the market that has an integrated solar portfolio and caters to multifaceted residential and commercial solar requirements. The company has completed many notable solar land-based and rooftop solar EPC projects in the country. Visakhapatnam port, HCST Mathura, Starex University, India’s premier convention centre, Nizamuddin Bridge are few among numerous places where Jakson’s solar panels have been installed. The company owns three state-of-the-art power plants located in Bap, Rajasthan and Lalitpur and Mahoba in Uttar Pradesh with a total capacity of 60MW. Their product range is wide that encapsulates both B2B and B2C requirements.
I would like to conclude by saying that for a country like India, which is rapidly industrializing and developing, the surge in the energy demand in sure to happen in the future. This will put an enormous burden on the existing natural resources. Thus, it is essential for India to gradually adopt renewable energy resources.
