Global warming must be restricted to 1.5 degrees. Time is running out. This decade is critical for the future of humanity. COP-26 has, therefore, urged countries to increase their commitments for 2030 under the Paris Agreement. For 2030, India has been truly remarkable in raising its goals. Its Paris commitments were ambitious in seeking to achieve 40 per cent of electricity generating capacity from renewables. If India gets onto the global frontier in the large-scale use of green hydrogen and full decarbonisation of electricity in the 2030s, then it could achieve net zero in the next decade.
