Goyal further added that this fusion of Solar Technology for providing green energy & energy security can be utilized for serving the under privileged & ultimately, the whole nation.

The minister stated that India has the skill, knowledge, capacity to develop cutting edge green technology which would provide power to the weaker section of society. He emphasized that India has to innovate; it has to invest in R & D & promote young innovators. “This way, we can provide a way forward to the World”, the Minister added.

Listing the initiatives taken by the government to give thrust renewable energy, the minister said the centre has launched two pilot projects at Phalodi in Rajasthan and Sasar at a cost of 80 crore rupees to provide solar power to all households in these two areas.

Earlier, Goyal laid the foundation stone for energy saving chilled water storage & centre for battery engineering & electric vehicles at the IIT-Chennai and launched a few green products and visited solar power green house.
