Transition to clean energy is not just another option but has become a necessity for long-term strategies, keeping in mind the energy security of our country and the environment at large. Renewable energy sources are inexhaustible, harmless to environment as well as human health and are becoming increasingly more affordable. Being more labour-intensive vis-à-vis conventional energy sources, there new able energy industry also enhances employment opportunities and curbs economic losses, since they provide better price stability and hardly require any transportation. Realizing this, India targets to ramp up its renewable energy capacity to 40 percent by 2030. Being the fourth largest greenhouse emitter currently, India is estimated to account for 25 percent of the world electricity demand by 2040, which is projected to increase by 70 percent. Hence, the country is keen on encouraging investment in clean energy solutions in an attempt to improve energy productivity and provide energy for all of its citizens.

Top 10 Energy Companies - 2020
The Indian energy sector is driven by renewables, surging oil demands, and higher gas output. It is stated that fossil fuels at present make up about 75 percent of India's energy mix, however, with the world closing towards cleaner technologies, India is projected to play the role of shaping the earth's future climate scenario. India is one of the rapidly growing economies, with predictions and analysis suggesting that it can overtake the United States and become the world's biggest economy by 2050. According to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), India's oil demand is projected to rise by 5.8 million barrels per day by 2040 and account for almost 40 percent of the overall increase in global demand in the next 20 years. With the increasing dependency on commercial fuels, there is a sizable packet of energy requisites, especially in the non-commercial sector, is complemented by the energy sources like fuelwood, crop residue, and animal waste, which also include human and draught animal power. But also with the rise of commercial energy of other forms, with greater quality and efficiency aspects, these aforementioned sources are being steadily replaced by petroleum products, coal, and electricity. According to the Central Electricity Authority's National Electricity Plan, renewable energy sources' contribution is expected to be almost 21 percent of the total electricity requisite in India between 2021 and 22 and 24 percent by 2026-27. And being a part of the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Accord on Climate Change, there has been a pledge by the country that by 2030, 40 percent of the installed power generation capacity shall be from non-fossil fuel sources, thereby reducing the carbon emission intensity of GDP by 33-35 percent from the level of 2005.
