Securing the goal of sustainable energy with lower emis- sions has become inevitable in the present day global scenario and renewable energy sources can play a vital role in achieving this target. It is already accepted that renewable energy technologies have the full potential of cov- ering the electricity demand and at the same time reducing emissions. The primary objective of deploying renewable energy in India is to advance economic development, improve energy security, improve access to energy, and mit- igate climate change. Sustainable development is possible by use of sustainable energy and by ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for citi- zens. Strong government support and the increasingly opportune economic situation have already pushed India to be one of the top leaders in the world’s most attractive renewable energy markets. In recent years, India has devel- oped a sustainable path for its energy supply. Awareness of saving energy has been promoted among citizens to increase the use of solar, wind, biomass, waste, and hydropower energies. It is evident that clean energy is less harmful and often cheaper. India is already aiming to attain 175 GW of renewable energy which would consist of 100 GW from solar energy, 10 GW from bio-power, 60 GW from wind power, and 5 GW from small hydropower plants. It is pertinent to mention here that the increasing economic growth of developing nations in the last decade has caused an accelerated increase in energy consumption and this trend is anticipated to grow. However, it is really an irony that the developed nations despite being responsible for having caused the climate change of today because of their 100 years of relentless carbon emissions are now making all efforts to ensure that they maintain their advantageous posi- tion as compared to the rest of the world thus resulting in a situation whereby the developing and the under developed nations will be the worst sufferers. It is a fact that the devel- oping nations including India are much cleaner throughout the development stages as compared to the developed nations. It is in this context that India has been vociferously raising this issue at the global level asking the developing nations to thwart the attempts of developed nations at behav- ing irresponsibly bothering least about the sufferings of the developing nations. India has already made its concerns and intentions unambiguously clear saying that the developed nations should encourage renewable energy programmes and not put a spoke into it. It would not be wrong to say that the most developed nation of the world today has been the mischief monger behind all such moves that could scuttle the progress of development in the developing nations fearing that it might lose its supremacy as the lone super-power of the world. In this regard India has been leading from the front the global fight against discrimination to which the develop- ing nations are being subjected by the developed world. It is high time that other nations from across the globe also come forward to join this war against discrimination met out to them at the hands of the developed nations. After all the so called civilized nations can’t be allowed to display hypocrisy by making tall promises during sermons at global conferences and practicing exactly opposite of the same. It is hoped that collective wisdom will ultimately prevail and both developed and developing nations will do their part in addressing the issue of climate change and will ensure that the developed world does not resort to discrimination of any kind against the developing nations in this global campaign. Moreover, the Union Govt needs to be proactive in ensuring the targets set relating to renewable energy.
