Now try and answer the following questions:

  1. A glaring lacuna in the national policy on renewablesis the failure to tap the investment potential of the middle class. Critically analyse this statement.
  2. What is energy security? What are its components? What should India do ensure its energy security?
  3. India is overwhelmingly dependent on coal fired electricity plants for its energy requirements making it unconducive for meeting its global responsibilities of climate change. How can renewable energy solve this issue?

Points to Ponder:

  1. Read about Paris Agreement and keep abreast of the latest developments in climate change agenda.
  2. Read about different types of solar technologies e.g. Photovoltaic, thermal etc. How are they contributing to the energy security of India.
