The science on climate change has never been clearer, but so are the solutions. While the impacts of climate change often appear overwhelming, particularly as we start to see the effects on our economy and society today, many of the technological solutions required to overcome this challenge are already available to us.

India has the ambitious targets of having 175 GW of renewable power capacity by 2022 and taking this up to 450 GW thereafter. The fall in costs of solar and wind power globally have been so dramatic that renewable energy is now the cheapest source of electricity when it is generated.
