Green Energy Trends to Renew the New Year

Green is the colour of nature, life, and prosperity. Certainly, Green energy stands for the exclusive form of energy that is pro-nature, pro-life, and pro-prosperity. Green energy is popularly termed as clean energy or renewable energy that focuses on using natural resources wisely in the present so that the crisis of the same could be ruled out for the future.

Mankind has been recklessly using natural resources for ages. Conventional sources like coal, petroleum, natural gas, etc. are all non-renewable and can get depleted with time. Whereas renewable energy sources like wind power, solar power, bioenergy (organic matter burned as a fuel), tidal energy, and hydroelectric. Natural resources are pretty limited and exhaustible. Additionally, over-consumption of these not only pollutes the environment greatly but also paves way for scarcity and chaos for our upcoming generations. It will be no exaggeration to state that choosing green energy today is equal to securing your savings for tomorrow.

The simple analogy trending this year in the energy sector worldwide is, the less you spend today the more you save for tomorrow.

India has been emphatically supporting the idea to go green for years and different governments have made several provisions to let the ecosystem be sustained with renewable sources of energy from time to time. Consequently, India is the third largest producer of renewable energy and we are a nation with a surplus power supply that doesn’t disturb the ecological balance. Our vision is to achieve Net Zero Emission by 2070 and we aim towards reducing the carbon emissions intensity of our GDP by 45 % by 2030.

The future of India looks pretty blooming green in several official reports. Interestingly, with the growing awareness among people and state authorities towards climate change and other environmental issues, the menace of pollution and ecological degradation is all set to be put under check soon. However, India being predominantly an agricultural country that still lacks optimum infrastructure, especially in the rural sector, will not be so easy to cut down fossil fuel consumption immediately. Solar energy and hydroelectricity are undoubtedly gaining pace and popularity in the market yet a complete green makeover for India is a hard nut to crack. For instance, different Indian states have different rooftop solar panel policies and we are lagging a comprehensive national policy for energy projects.

It should always be kept in mind that although the grass is always greener on the other side, there is always scope for improvement. Public awareness, strict actions, a unified system of energy usage, and above all feeling a sense of belongingness to Mother earth is the need of the hour to let her stay hale and hearty.
