  • Jyoti Kataria asked: What is the future of India-Vietnam cooperation in the field of renewable energy?

    Udai Bhanu Singh replies: Renewable energy or clean energy is energy from natural resources that can be replenished such as solar, hydro-electric, geothermal and wind energy. In a virtual summit held between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc in December 2020, an agreement on renewable energy was signed.

    Chirag Gupta asked: Why are we inclined towards nuclear energy when the per unit cost of electricity is much higher compared to other sources of energy like solar and wind?

    Shining Not so Bright: Solar Energy in India

    According to a recent report, India will need 3, 128 Trillion watt hour per year (TWH) of electrical energy in the future if it adopts a frugal policy for energy use. This annual need could be met through renewable energy sources alone in the form of solar power (photovoltaic [PV] and thermal), wind, and hydroelectric power. But is this change in energy mix really feasible?
