Renewable energy resources are the only source of future which can never be extinct. However, non renewable energy resources such as coal are very efficient when compared to that of solar and hydro but the only aspect which puts a break is that coal would be extinct within few years.Hence, it is required to compensate the productivity of non renewable energy resources with renewable ones and make a healthier and Eco friendly environment.
At an ongoing Union Climate summit (COP21) which is held in Paris, A senior Indian negotiator stated that India would bring down the usage of coal provided India is aided by the developed countries with financial and technical aspects for its transition to renewable energy.
According to Economic times- Ajay Mathur,a member of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Council on Climate Change and director general of Bureau of Energy Efficiency. has stated that it is looked forward to an agreement which enables financial support from the countries that have developed on the backs of cheap energy to those who have to meet their energy demands with more expensive but low carbon or zero carbon energy. Additionally, he has added that Solar energy would be the first preference and non carbon resources such as hydro, nuclear would be developed to a larger extent. Coal would be used in cases where these resources fail to meet the requirements.
Moreover, the negotiators in the summit have responded in a positive way portraying that they would support India’s transition to renewable energy. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has pledge in a very impressive way with respect to the renewable energy. A total of 175 gigawatts in a very short period of time was pledged by him in the US delegation
Even China has also announced steps to upgrade many power plants in an effort to clean up the air and reduce carbon, according to the the official Xinhua news agency, quoting the State Council.
