Major extractive industries such as copper and coal, to name just a few, not only have a vital role to play in a country's economic growth but also in creating an ecosystem that helps in the development of various downstream and ancillary industries. The success of India's petrochemical sector is a great example of what downstream industries can achieve provided they have enough feedstock from upstream companies, which are used as raw materials or inputs for the final products.

The recent IPCC report that came out in the month of March 2022 says that, by the end of the century, the temperature rise is likely to be 2 to 3.7 degrees if global emissions, as they stand today, are not curtailed. In fact, according to the report, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions need to come down by 45 percent globally (compared with 2005) by the end of 2030. And current trends show that the reduction is falling quite short, as the total impact of all the nationally determined contributions put together is still not more than 11 percent.

The target should be that we achieve a major shift in getting decentralised generation in villages going below the one-megawatt level and we can only get that if we have a feed-in tariff regime. So, the DISCOMs saves money because of low delivery cost, the country saves on transmission investments, and the village gets reliable supply. This creates a huge efficiency gain there and a much easier market-based achievement of the target of 450,000 megawatts.
