Power Outages

Long hours of power cuts affect the lives of rural households in India. Agriculture and local manufacturing units dependent on the reliable power supply are unable to function at optimum capacity.

Climate Change

Developing countries like India are most affected by climate change, with its implications on health, agriculture, economy, trade, transportation and energy. This need to be addressed urgently.

Water Scarcity

Heavy water usage by fossil fuel power plants aggravates water scarcity in India. Power plants that are located in highly water-stressed areas face regular shutdowns affecting electricity supply.

Concentrated Ownership

Majority of financial benefits of renewable energy are reaped by the corporate sector. The poor and underprivileged communities need to be developed and included in solutions addressing climate change.
