Goa lays out ambitious plan for zero emissions by 2050

Goa needs to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 189 million tonnes to make it a zero-emission state by 2050 under the Goa State Energy Action Plan (GSEAP).

“In the next 30 years, Goa’s transport sector needs to eliminate almost 97 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, followed by the power sector with 63 million tonne and industries with 16 million,” the GSEAP says.

The energy action plan in the power sector includes harnessing the state’s entire renewable energy potential to the tune of 4 GW by 2050, augmenting green power procurement of 17 GWH by 2050, strengthening the transmission and distribution network and obtaining grid stability while increasing the renewable energy share.

The agriculture sector needs to use B-20 for all farm machines by 2050, use 100% green electricity for all farm activities, including pumps, by 2050, achieve 100% KUSUM programme implementation and 150 MW Agro-PV capacity by 2050.

In the building sector, there needs to be use of 100% green electricity for all building operational activities by 2050 and 100% per cent solarisation of all thermal energy requirements for heating.

The industry sector must replace 100% coal use with biomass, as well as replace 100% oil use with biofuels. Similarly, the transport sector must see 100% electrification of two-wheelers, cars and taxis, 20% blending of biofuels in all categories of vehicles and 100% use of green electricity for EV charging.
