India sets sights on home-mined minerals to boost its clean energy plans

    The shift towards electric vehicles and renewable energy storage systems necessitates a steady supply of lithium and cobalt, which are critical components in batteries. Reducing reliance on imports of these minerals is a strategic move to support the growth of the electric vehicle and renewable energy sectors in India.

            There before the mining that was done affected residents in a negative way. I hope whatever they are promising that the minerals mined going forward will be used in making solar panels and help them accelerate green energy is actually true

              The mining and refining of these minerals will have significant negative environmental impacts.
