A recent study outlines a pathway for India to achieve energy independence, grounded in rapidly falling clean technology costs
India can construct solar and wind capacity + energy storage alongside existing coal plants, enabling the substitution of coal generation with power from nearby renewable energy sources.
Benefits include $2.5 tn in consumer savings, reducing fossil fuel import expenditure by 90%, enhancing industrial competitiveness globally, and enabling net-zero commitment, says Berkeley Lab report.
