The last two years have seen a flurry of reports that have projected the long-term greenhouse gas emissions trajectory of India, and how the country can go low-carbon and help solve the climate change crisis.

Wind turbine manufacturer Suzlon Energy today said it had received its first ever order from a subsidiary of Larsen and Toubro (L&T) to set up a 8.7-MW wind energy project in Tamil Nadu.

THANJAVUR: Efficient utilisation of renewable energy will help resolve the crisis being caused by carbon emission. Global warming can be checked to a great extent through the use of renewable energy, said N. Ramachandran, Vice-Chancellor, Periyar Maniammai University.


THE evolution of the policy framework for renewable energy dovetails dual national considerations: the need to enhance energy availability for rapid growth, and mitigating impact of climate change.

New Delhi: The National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency will be implemented from April 1, 2010. While making the announcement, power minister Sushilkumar Shinde said enhancing energy efficiency is a quick and effective way to mitigate climate change.

The rural population in India does not have access to reliable energy. India has millions of tonnes of unused and available biomass waste. This loose biomass is currently treated as a waste with no economic value. It is often burnt inefficiently in open fields, causing air pollution. However this 'waste' can be turned into a completely environment-friendly source of energy through briquetting.
