It is my belief that any country, large or small, can run completely on renewable energy sources. However, doing so requires long-term planning and commitment, even in the face of setbacks and political pressure. Even if India ultimately does not succeed in transitioning to 100% renewable energy, the country will have still set a strong, encouraging precedent.
It is actually a sign that 100% renewable energy is possible for a large country. This is evidenced in India whereby renewable energy is growing faster than non-renewable energy. Renewable energy is actually beneficial in that it can be used more than ones. This is because it can be renewed.
Yes, this is a sign that 100% renewable energy is possible for a large country. If countries focused on renewable energy, they would create so many new jobs for their people. The only problem is that some politicians do not believe in climate change and they are paid by anti-climate change lobbyists.
By 2050, India could rely entirely on renewable energy to create a sustainable energy future. In the coming years, India will face seemingly insurmountable challenges to its economy, environment and energy security. The Government of India has taken several measurable steps toward improving infrastructure and power reliability (such as development of renewable energy from solar and wind), clearly more needs to be done, and fast. One step in the right direction was the establishment of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) in late 2009.
