What are Your Suggestions to Modi Government for 100 GW Solar in India?

We have seen a large number of solar energy initiatives in the last 2 years – some ambitious, some expected, and some harebrained!

While 100 GW by 2022 is not exactly unachievable, it sure is super ambitious. But, achieving it requires much more than just talk and intentions.

Thankfully, we have seen some action both from the […]
