The tailwinds of change seem to be carrying India in a positive direction. The state has recently decided to reduce its energy dependency on coal-based plants in the upcoming four years. The new mission statement was shared by an open letter issued to Federal and State governments by the top energy development department of the country.
While the increased population in the country is in dire need of an increasing amount of additional and more sustainable energy resources, the government officials are working on cutting down the 81 coal-dependent energy production plants that generate around 58 billion kilowatts per hour of energy.
The transfer of energy generation quota from these 81 coal rigs will cur carbon emissions by 60.2 million tons and secure 34.7 million tons of coal each year, according to the power minister office of India.
