The Union Minister said, “Our last target is also vehicles that can take up to 100 percent ethanol. We will encourage users of electric cars to recharge their batteries by using renewable energy or solar energy during daylight hours.
Farmers’ income will also increase through ethanol.
Union Minister Piyush Goyal in his address at the second end session of Self-Reliant India for Renewable Energy Manufacturing on Friday said that India will achieve the target of 20 percent ethanol mixture with petrol by 2023-24. Piyush Goyal said, “We are now looking at 20 percent ethanol mixture in the next two years. By 2023-2024, India is going to mix 20 percent ethanol in its petrol products.
He said, “Our final target is also such vehicles which can take up to 100 percent ethanol. Our idea is to make India aware of meeting its electricity needs in a more sustainable manner and balancing the cost of electricity in this way. So that our development goals are not affected. From an overall renewable energy target of 175 gigawatts (GW) by 2022, India is now looking at 450 gigawatts by 2030.
In addition, Goyal said, “We will encourage automobile users of electric cars to recharge their batteries using renewable energy or solar energy during daylight hours, for which we are working on a large number of charging stations at gas stations in the country. Considering a rollout.” The minister mentioned that battery technology is going to be very important for India’s sustainability mission and for the progress of renewable energy. He said that the government is now investing heavily in batteries. “We are confident that India will play a leadership role in the field of renewable energy in the years to come,” he said.
Noting the progress made in the country, Piyush Goyal said, “Hydro-Power is in the initial phase and we have already started engaging in Hydrogen technologies looking towards the future. A hydrogen energy mission has been started from green energy sources in 2021-22 to generate hydrogen.
Further, talking about the progress made by the country in renewable energy, Goyal said that several decades ago, India was one of the earliest countries to promote hydro-power generation of electricity. The first small hydroelectric plant started functioning in Darjeeling in 1897.
