India, home to over 17 per cent of the world’s population is also its fifth largest consumer of energy and the sixth largest producer. Yet, its grid T&D loses amount to about 25 per cent, among the highest in the world, 16 per cent of its villages remain without electricity, 12 per cent of its people go without access to clean drinking water, only 5 per cent of its approximately 4 lakh tons of e-waste is disposed properly.
Each of these issues is a stark problem and also a massive opportunity in itself.
Within the next seven years the power sector alone would need an investment of over $ 600 billion to enhance power generation and modernise transmission and distribution.
