Karnataka & Gujarat Lead Jharkhand, Bihar Lag In Clean Energy Transition: Reports


(MENAFN- KNN India) New Delhi, Apr 23 (KNN) New reports indicate that Karnataka and Gujarat are at the forefront of the clean energy
transition, showcasing commendable progress in integrating renewable
energy
sources and advancing decarbonisation efforts.

However, states such as Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, and Uttar Pradesh are urged to intensify their efforts to catch up, according to a joint report released by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) and clean energy
think tank Ember.

The report underscores Karnataka and Gujarat's strong performance across various dimensions of clean energy
adoption, highlighting their successful integration of renewable
energy
into their power sectors.

Conversely, states like Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, and Uttar Pradesh are identified as needing improvement.

Although these states are in the early stages of their transition, the focus must now shift towards ramping up renewable
energy
deployment, enhancing short-term market
participation, and bolstering distribution companies.

This assessment coincides with a period of intense heat waves affecting parts of India, prompting the Ministry of Power to prepare for a projected peak power demand of 260 gigawatts.

The soaring temperatures underscore the importance of transitioning to clean energy
sources, such as solar power.

However, this transition requires proactive measures and preparedness from states to effectively harness clean electricity sources.
