India to meet 50% of energy demand from renewable sources

Ministry of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Minister Giriraj Singh told the media that India had set an ambitious target of meeting 50% of its energy needs from renewable energy sources by 2030 and reaching the net zero-emission target by 2070.

He said that the world has been facing the consequences of developed nations’ exploitation of nature.

He added that around 18% of the world’s population lives in India on only 2.4% of the land, yet the country’s contribution to carbon emission is just 5%.

To combat climate change, India has adopted a five-point plan which includes meeting 50% of its energy demand of 500 GW every year from renewable resources by 2030.

The Minister said that India will reduce carbon emissions by one billion tonnes per year till 2030, and by 2070, the country will achieve the target of net-zero emissions.

He said there should be a discussion on the environment in homes and village panchayats, and all panchayats should plant trees to combat carbon emissions.

He said that this year’s best panchayat award would be given to the one that has worked towards a net-zero carbon footprint while addressing the Conference of Panchayats 2022 at Indira Gandhi Pratishthan on World Environment Day.
