PM Modi on increasing existing clean energy capacity

News Desk: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that India will increase its existing clean energy capacity of 134 GW to 220 GW by 2022.
As PM Modi was unable to convey the message, so New and Renewable Energy Minister R K Singh read out Modi’s message at the virtual summit.
“We have scaled up our non-fossil fuel based generation to 134 GW, which is about 35 per cent of our total power generation. We are confident of increasing it to 220 GW by 2022. Technology holds the key to scale up the use of solar energy. Technological advancements have already brought about a significant reduction in the price of solar power. A further reduction in the cost will provide a major boost to the use and expansion of renewable energy”
PM Modi also said that ‘One World, One Sun, One Grid’ project is aimed at clean energy supplies across nations and International Solar Alliance (ISA) is a part of this project. He also stated that the government wants to take solar energy to all villages in the country and replace diesel with this clean source in the farm sector.
