India mulls end to coal plant construction (A good start but needs to do more)

Image of post in post detailed view

India plans to stop building new coal-fired power plants, apart from those already in the pipeline, by removing a key clause from the final draft of its National Electricity Policy (NEP), sources said. The draft, if approved by the federal cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, would make China the only major economy open to fresh requests to add significant new coal-fired capacity.

    It is definitely a good start. We hope that all countries could consider doing away with caol

      This is a meagre action if the old mines still continue to operate

        It is encouraging to hear that India is considering putting an end to coal plant construction. Coal power is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, so transitioning away from it is crucial for reducing environmental damage and addressing climate change. However, it is important to highlight that more actions are needed beyond just halting construction. India should also focus on increasing investments in renewable energy sources, implementing stricter emissions regulations, and promoting energy efficiency measures. A comprehensive and ambitious approach is necessary to ensure a sustainable and cleaner future for India's energy sector.

              This idea means no good than harm if at all the plants already in the pipeline will still be allowed to be set up and operate.It simply means that India isn't abandoning coal any time soon, let's not be fooled ⚠️.

                      If implemented, this could serve as a turning point. Now we also need South Africa to make the turn away from new coal plants
