Coal India’s most common energy source

In India an overwhelming amount of energy sources utilized are sources that are not environment-friendly.  71.6 per cent of energy sources utilized are unclean sources, with coal having the largest share. Clean sources of energy form only 28.4 per cent of the share, with renewable energy contributing a paltry 14.2 per cent. Coal energy is the source for most of India’s air pollution. China is taking substantial steps to mark a shift from coal energy to renewable energy sources. India’s progress, however, has been much slower. The government is planning to place solar energy under a grid system, which would increase consumption of solar energy in India. This would be a first step in catching up with China’s solar farms.
