The world saw total renewable installations of over 178 GW, the largest till date in 2017; This was greatly aided by the massive surge of 29% over the previous year at 98 GW. Clean energy is now being seen as the future of reliable energy supply to millions of people with investments and capacity enhancements set to continue for the next few years. The commitments made under COP 21 provide a thrust to countries globally for increasing renewable capacity to mitigate the effects of climate change. Viraj Desai, through this article, unravels the historical perspective of clean energy, the global scenario, in particular India’s current status, the challenges, and the way forward.

Climate change is real and happening right before our eyes. Recently, we witnessed how Kerala received 2,378 mm rainfall in just over 88 days flooding the state beyond recognition; eastern North Carolina in the USA saw 30 inches rain on a single day while the states of New South Wales and Queensland in Australia have been suffering from continuous drought conditions since 2012. Virtually every continent in the world faced severe droughts, wildfires, hurricanes, and unprecedented floods in recent years. The global weather norm has been changing to either too much flooding or drier and hotter summer or droughts. Through this article, Mr Jyothi Mahalingam explains the warning of the climate research scientists that the biggest is yet to come and the main challenge before us is how we are going to tackle the current situation. The researchers are equally worried about meeting the energy needs of our growing population sustainably without further damaging the environment.

Increasing industrialization is leading to a steep demand for electricity, especially in the developing and under developed countries. Worldwide, it is becoming economically viable to generate clean power and phase out fossil fuels which emit harmful greenhouse gases due to renewable solar energy technology. In this article, Dr O P Nangia describes the state of energy transition today, enumerates the challenges on the path, and the trends of the future.

Electric vehicles insofar as they help arrest the alarming levels of pollution indices present an enormous opportunity for India. They can also save a lot of fuel and the financial cost borne by India for annual crude oil imports. The Government of India is working hard to give a strong push to electric mobility over the last few years and has already announced Electric Mission 2030 to provide an impetus to the entire e-mobility ecosystem, including vehicle manufacturers, charging infrastructure companies, fleet operators, service providers, etc. In this article, Abhishek Sharma and M Vijay Kumar analyse the growing importance of electric vehicles, their potential, and the challenges ahead.
