As per the report on World Energy Outlook 2021 of the International Energy Agency (IEA), the then-current share of India in the global primary energy consumption was 6.1% and is likely to increase to about 9.8% understated policies scenarios by 2050. India’s dependence on coal, oil, and natural gas as a source of energy is projected to grow as a result of this increase in demand for power. But not only will domestic coal production and oil imports fall short of meeting demand, they will also have an adverse impact on the environment and the economy. One of the ways India can improve its energy security in the face of rising demand is by increasing the number of solar power units and its reliance on solar energy.
