Media Workshop 2021: Media as a catalyst for clean and sustainable power generation

Tue, 28/09/2021 - 16:25

Like any other state in India, Tamil Nadu principally relies on coal for its energy production which is a major contributor to climate change and raises the vulnerability of Tamil Nadu and other Indian states to frequent natural disasters and extreme weather events. Public concern about climate change was largely informed via media consumption. It's important for climate change to become a bigger part of the national conversation, along with what's causing it: the burning of oil, gas and coal and the media has a big role to play in it. During this workshop, reputed journalist, Mr. Bhasker Tripathi spoke about how upcoming journalists can engage more people on the issue of climate change and how to tell the story of the climate change and tell it accurately.

The cost of charging your battery at home is estimated at Rs 6 - 7 per unit. The full charge for a 40 kWh battery will therefore cost Rs 250, taking about 6-8 hours to charge fully. On a full charge, a 40 kWh battery installed in leading EVs may give ranges of 350-400 km. In a home charge infrastructure, the cost of operating the electric vehicle will be less than Rs 1 per kilometre.
