While India focuses on solar energy and green technology for its growing energy needs, ICTs here are emerging in a supportive role in building new systems to enable efficient power consumption in the country.

Power consumption in India looks set to rise steadily over the next decade, so it is imperative for the Indian government to steer a push towards wind and solar power.

While addressing the first meeting of the Solar Energy Industry Advisory Council (SEIAC) in New Delhi, the Union Minister of New & Renewable Energy,  Dr Farooq Abdullah, called upon the industry leaders to invest in Solar Energy Projects in the country. The Minister stated that in the country there existed a vast scope for developing solar energy applications as still many parts of  rural India do not have access to grid connected electricity.

“It is high time India taps non-conventional energy sources to meet its growing demand for power. The country now depends more on fossil fuel, which is very  costly. So we should move towards harvesting solar and wind energies,” said Dr Farooq Abdullah, Union Minister of New & Renewable Energy.
