OK. I did not know that India actually has a ministry of new and renewable energy. I mean, a whole ministry dedicated to finding new and renewable sources of energy.
And what does this kind of ministry do? Well, some pretty interesting stuff.
India will subsidize the running of solar power plants to help develop a renewable energy infrastructure, where high costs can be prohibitive, the minister for renewable energy said on Wednesday.Renewable energy infrastructure?
Renewable energy accounts for about 7.5 percent of India's installed generation capacity of 127,673 MW, a rate that compares favorably with much of the rest of the world.
You can look for those words on the Canadian Environment Ministry website but you'll be wasting your time. They aren't there.
You may also want to know that Canada already has a higher percentage of renewable energy resources than most countries at 17 percent, most of it from hydroelectric power. India at 7.5 percent is already above the world average.
