Alternative Energy in India

Do not despair over the potential for emerging economies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

India is a rapidly developing economy and with a vibrant alternative energy sector. A recent article on wind energy places India as the 4th largest user of wind energy, and that is likely to rapidly expand. For more, see the following :

India has a long coastline, and is well suited to wind power development. China is also very active in wind power development.

Maybe there are implications for north Australia in this area, as both India and north Australia are in similar latitudes. seems in north Australia, they say the wind in inadequate. Surprised? Most people are.

The Indian government has also announced a new incentive scheme for improved use of solar panels and solar power.

If it can be done in can be done in north Australia too.
