Importance of energy

The energy industry is one of the most crucial elements in a nation’s infrastructure. The development of the energy industry helps a nation grow their economy. Furthermore, it improves important facets such as technology, transportation, and medical help. Energy is essential to almost all global communities and is necessary for the functionality of all global industries.

Energy in India

India has a very diverse energy sector, which uses coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear energy, hydro energy, and renewable energy. Their use of electricity has exponentially increased over the last decades. Throughout 2017, India’s electricity production has remained somewhat steady from month to month. On the other hand, the amount of electricity that was generated every month from renewable sources in India has fluctuated. Renewable sources include solar energy, wind power, and tidal power. State-based grid management systems for electricity were first introduced in India in the 1960s. Since 1998, India’s coal consumption has significantly increased and it is one of the top coal producers in the world. Despite the increase in electricity access throughout India, many homes, especially in rural areas, remain without access.
