India's energy transition and SDGs: Role of G20

The relationship between India's progress towards achieving its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our commitments to energy transition is multifaceted and complex. As India stands at the forefront of progress during its G20 presidency, there is no time like now to demonstrate to other nations how momentum during transition can be accomplished while navigating challenges such as renewable energy intermittency, substantial capital needs, and the social implications of moving away from fossil fuels.

India's energy transition and SDGs: Role of G20

India’s G20 presidency comes at both opportune and challenging times from an energy transition perspective. India has committed to moving away from its traditional dependence on fossil fuels and embracing renewable energy sources. However, this transition needs to be just and balanced; and it is not just about installing solar panels and wind turbines. It needs to provide uninterrupted and quality power to all citizens while managing the intermittency of renewable energy sources.
