India Doubles New Coal Power Capacity

India's push for energy security has led to a significant surge in coal power capacity additions, doubling its figures in 2023, as reported by the Global Energy Monitor. Despite global efforts to transition towards cleaner energy sources, India's reliance on coal remains robust, driven by the nation's growing energy demands and the need for stable power generation.

The rapid expansion of coal power capacity reflects India's complex energy landscape, where the prioritization of affordable and accessible electricity intersects with environmental concerns. While renewable energy initiatives have gained traction, coal continues to play a dominant role in fulfilling the country's energy requirements.

This surge in coal power capacity highlights both the challenges and opportunities facing India as it navigates its energy transition. On one hand, the expansion signifies a continued dependence on fossil fuels, raising concerns about environmental sustainability and carbon emissions. On the other hand, it underscores the urgent need for diversified energy strategies and investments in cleaner technologies to balance economic growth with environmental preservation.

The Global Energy Monitor's findings shed light on India's energy trajectory and its implications for global climate goals. As the world grapples with the imperative to decarbonize the energy sector, India's coal power expansion underscores the complexities involved in achieving a sustainable energy transition.

The Delhi-Dehradun Motorway will reduce commute time by half

The Delhi-Dehradun expressway's fourth segment, which would improve connectivity, is expected to open by May 2025. Saharanpur will be used in this project to connect two roads. Instead of five hours, a two-hour journey time is what is expected. This motorway will save fuel, lessen traffic, enhance connectivity between the two cities, and save time. It is projected that the project will cost Rs. 130 billion. On the motorway, light cars are permitted to go up to 100 kmph. After NH44, the longest highway spanning from north to south, this will be the second motorway, including a wildlife protec..
