Popular opinion the world over indicates that electric mobility is the way forward. Cars like the Hyundai Kona Electric with zero tailpipe emissions promise to help realise our vision of drastically reducing the negative impact of automobiles on the environment.
While manufacturers like Hyundai are doing their bit by providing feature-rich EVs with ample range for daily usage, to truly have a meaningful impact on fossil fuel emissions, a more holistic approach needs to be adopted. One of the ways that can be done is by reducing dependency on fossil fuel burning thermal power plants for electricity supply and instead of working towards harnessing renewable sources of energy.
India receives about 5,000 trillion kWh of solar radiation per year, among the highest in the world. With an estimated solar power potential of 750GW and the current installed capacity of over 37,000MW, India ranks among the top five globally in terms of solar PV capacity and that is certainly a matter of pride.
