The article explores the decision of India to shift to renewable energy. Problems specific to renewable energy include intermittent nature of renewable energy sources, grid penetration limitations, higher capital investment, and requirement of preferential tariffs. The government has already announced a Climate Action Plan, created separate ministry, and set date for biofuel mix. States must still announce plans to reduce emissions and consider transparent pricing of thermal power.
