Mukesh Ambani pitches for reforms in renewable energy
Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) chairman Mukesh Ambani on Saturday said India needs disruptive solutions in renewable, low carbon and carbon recycle technologies as well as breakthroughs in renewable energy and innovations in storage and utilisation to achieve
the twin goals of becoming an economic and a clean-and-green energy superpower.
“By the middle of the century, the world will use twice as much energy as we use today. In the next two decades, India’s own per capita energy needs will be more than twice as much as today,” Ambani said.
Speaking at the 8th convocation of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay University (PDPU), the RIL chief forecast an “explosive and exponential growth” in the Indian economy in the post-Covid era.
Ambani, who is also the president of the board of governors of PDPU, said India had entered a crucial phase in its fight against coronavirus and cannot afford to let the guard down at this juncture.
