India is working to transform its energy landscape with significant clean energy share: Minister Jitendra Singh

As India is working to transform its energy landscape with a significant clean energy share, Science and Technology Minister Jitendra Singh has told the international community that the country will achieve net zero emissions by 2070.

India has agreed to reach 500GW of non-fossil energy capacity, shift 50 per cent of energy to renewable sources, reduce total estimated carbon emissions by one billion tonnes and reduce the economy’s carbon intensity by 45 per cent from 2005 levels.

“India continues to work towards transforming the country’s energy landscape with a significant clean energy stake,” Singh said at the Global Clean Energy Acceleration Forum, a joint event of the 7th Mission Innovation and 13th Clean Energy Ministerial, here.

Highlighting the need to strengthen long-term private sector engagement, he said the transition to bio-economy is based on projects under development and deployment with high investment and high-risk ambitions.

“I share one such milestone example. A pilot plant of 10 ton per day capacity is being set up at Panipat, Haryana with integrated enzyme production. This plant will be commissioned by December and it will be on site for enzyme production. The first will be indigenous technology,” Singh said.

He said that Indian Oil Corporation Limited plans to supply this indigenous enzyme to a commercial 2G ethanol plant of 100 KL per day which is expected to be commissioned by the second quarter of 2024.

“In addition, lignin valorization processes are also being developed to produce value-added products from waste lignin.” The minister said that sustainable biofuels play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector. Singh said that the Department of Biotechnology is supporting innovations in advanced biofuels and waste-to-energy technologies.
