Solarizing India
Generation of Green Opportunities
Malav Trivedi

The Government of India has set a target of installing 175 GW of renewable energy capacity in the country by the year 2022, which includes 100 GW from solar energy. Malav Trivedi says that keeping that in mind there are bound to be green opportunities within the solar energy sector in India in the near future, which will boost our economy and in a broader perspective will be beneficial for the environment as well.

We all know the sun’s role in photosynthesis and blossoming of fruits, vegetables, and food crops and cereals. Indeed, the sun is not only giving us solar energy for appliances such as solar water heater, rooftop solar, solar cooker, etc., but also generating job opportunities. These opportunities are in terms of jobs that have been generated by the solar sector till now and are going to be added in future with India’s move towards solarizing itself. However, our primary aim for deploying renewable energy in India is to advance economic development, improve energy security, improve access to energy, and mitigate climate change.
