An energy crisis is any enormous bottleneck in the delivering of energy resources to an economy. This often refers to one of the energy resource utilized at a various time and place, specifically those that supply national electricity grids or serves up as fuel for vehicles. There has been a huge rise in the global demand for energy in current years as a consequence of population growth and industrial development.
Amongst power and cuts prices rise in India and buck-passing between companies and politicians, can renewable power resolve the city’s energy troubles?
Greenpeace has revealed a recent report which shows the Delhi’s miserable failure to achieve renewable energy targets. “As the capital, Delhi receives 75% of its energy from coal plants located in other states. This has made the capital self-satisfied, and sluggish to consider other substitutes.
The report also focused on the emerging inequity between urban and rural areas. Coal gulping also appeared at a vast environmental cost for the city, and the country, with India now on the edge of a public health crisis.
"This report is a condemnation of the entire policy framework around the dismissive attitude and renewable of the government towards it. Renewable power could have been an instrument to link the demand-supply gap in the energy sector all across India. But the toothless system combined with unambitious objectives has failed to give any momentum to renewables in India."
