India Still Heavily Reliant On Coal After Global Coal Prices Drop

If there could be some degree of respite for the common folk during this year’s overheated summer, it might be fewer electricity outages. And they might want to thank China for that.
Electricity generation by Indian power plants fired by imported coal has nearly doubled in the first three weeks of April from a year earlier as global prices of the polluting fuel have declined by about 30%.

    India should instead accelerate its shift towards renewable energy to address both environmental concerns and long-term energy security!! Not relying on coal!!!

      India should see the brighter side of transitioning in clean energy and end its production of coal

            India's heavy reliance on coal is worrying.

            "nearly doubled" is what astonishes me.India must come to the realities of climate change and desist from coal energy in exchange for green energy

            Its time for India to reconsider the use of the deadly fossil fuel and transition to renewable energy...

              India should be thinking of a way to transition from coal to renewable energy.

                They should stop as they are moving other efforts back to the starting point.

                  @walter_lungayi The use of Coal is outdated and India should move away from fossil fuels use and join the world in the transition to green energy

                    @walter_lungayi sure.Continued use of coal by India at a time when other countries are scaling there use is a serious setback.Time to transition
