Solar energy – let us use this to the maximum. In Developed countries all building roof tops are used to harvest solar energy. Let us make it compulsory for all buildings to tap into solary energy, including houses, especially in the urban areas atleast. Let us give them 3 years time with the adequate material and easy to harvest mechanisms.
All street lights have to use Solar energy. Make a policy ruling across states, and whichever city/town follows gets an incentive, and whoever does not follow pay a premium/additional charge on the electricity bill/charges.
All companies which consumes more than 50 lacs INR worth of electricity in a year have to invest in sustainable energy bonds. Alternately they can install equivalent capacity somewhere and connect it to the grid. The sustainable energy bonds would be used to fund wind energy projects/companies.
In the rural areas, promote bio-mass based plants. If milk can be collected and processed in the likes of Amul type of co-operative milk societies, bio-mass waste also can be collected and processed. Can we ride on similar logistics and extend those.
Let us make sure that Solar cells can be produced in India, and bring the technology and the producer to setup JV or allow/incentivise manufacturers to setup units in India.
Promote vehicles that use CNG. Make CNG available through pipes across easy to supply states to begin with, say Gujarat & Maharashtra can be connected with pipes, atleast the Tier-1 and Tier-2 cities/towns to begin with.
Invest heavily in alternate energy sources such as ethanol, jetropha oil, pongamia oil and other unconventional sources. Enforce policy to mix 20%-40% such alternate energy sources with petrol.
