India’s mission to promote decentralised renewable energy sources

Its a mission to mobilise village panchayats, youth leaders and local collectives to demand quick, quality access to sustainable power that can be delivered through local renewable energy solutions.

Campaign for an energy revolution in Bihar2, Sify News, Patna, Oct 2 (IANS) Greenpeace India along with a coalition of civil society groups Saturday launched a campaign to demand an energy revolution in Bihar.’The aim is to sensitise people to the merits of renewable energy, so that they can demand their political candidates and parties to include it in their agenda in the assembly elections in Bihar,’ said Arpana Udupa, campaigner, Greenpeace India.

The campaign ‘Urja Kranti Yatra’ launched under the banner of the Bihar Renewable Energy Development Support Network started from the Gandhi Ashram at Bhitiharwa, West Champaran. It will traverse 10 districts of Bihar constituencies, before culminating in Patna Oct 27.

‘It is clear that addition of large coal power plants is never going to bring electricity to the villages in the next five years. They have a right to quality power, and that can be done now by generating power right here in their village from renewable energy,’ Udupa said.
