GigaWhat will explore some of the biggest questions, challenges, and opportunities in India's transition from fossil fuel to clean energy sources. As countries commit to cut their carbon emissions to tackle climate change and other environmental issues, there's growing attention on the clean and renewable energy sector. And there’s a lot of money behind it too. It's a sector evolving every day, right in front of us.
India is the world’s third-largest energy consumer. Its clean energy dream is one of the most ambitious and the biggest in the world. On GigaWhat we'll explore the environmental, social, and infrastructure challenges the sector is facing: not enough electric vehicle battery charging stations, the absence of a recycling policy for handling discarded solar panels, and so on.
We’ll also explore how clean energy has the potential to lower India’s air pollution levels - one of the worst in the world. We’ll also discuss the reckless side of renewable energy projects and inspect how ‘clean’ they really are.
You will hear Mayank Aggarwal, Contributing Editor at Mongabay-India, interacting with experts, researchers, policymakers, on-field journalists, and people on the ground, to bring you insightful discussions about India’s clean energy journey.
