clean energyEnergy, one of the essential entities required to run a small household, somewhere in far countryside to the big industries in industrial corridors of metro cities, is backbone of world’s economic growth and business sustainability. Expansion of the economies and emerging markets across the globe, have led to an unprecedented demand of energy coming from brutal devastation of natural resources. which is being main accused of the changing environmental scenarios, made us to look for some alternatives to meet the energy demands, i.e. something from renewable sources like solar, hydro and wind energy sources and many countries has already achieved remarkable feats in this regard. 

With the advent of solar power and proof of its feasibility, various new prospects of green & sustainable business models in energy domain has already emerged in many countries including India. Indian households to industries which have been receiving energy supply primarily from thermal or nuclear energy plants, now have solar energy option too. Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission(NSM), launched in 2010 has not only opened the way for solar energy entrepreneurs to come up but also reflected the vision & mission of the government for its solar program by setting up a target of 22000MW solar power generation by 2022. India has renewable energy sources accounting for 28000MW as of now. 

Learning from exceptional solar power growth in Germany, which accounts for more than 37000MW from sun rays & china’s rapid solar energy installations projects, Indian states are doing a fair job in solar field and NSM is giving a boost to their plans.  The commencement of India’s largest solar plant in M.P with 137MW and many more solar projects in pipelining is a good trend to meet the ever since growing demand of power. 

Gujrat being the first state, to take lead in solar power setup ,much before the launch of national solar mission, has also achieved remarkable feat with total 800 MW setup across the state as of now, which includes PV cells over canal of length more than 1 Km and solar plants on ground. More and more states are joining the row with the time and at the same time opening the new avenues for innovative entrepreneurs to extend their helping hands to meet the power requirements of at least households, to light up the street lamps, for agri works and for lighting the local markets.

Encouraging move by states has helped in developing a new entrepreneurial eco-system across the country which is continuously helping in establishment of centralized solar power grids, off-grids and solar powered home systems. These solutions are not only affordable to a vast fraction of power deprived population but also are more eco-friendly & clean. New startups like Kiran Energy, Naturaltech, Mera Gao Power, Azure Power, Lumos , Sunkalp Energy, LEDPrince and many more are playing a vital role in achieving the goal set by national solar mission and also establishing their entrepreneurial roots too.

This is an overview of growing solar power web in India , which I think is very important for a nation with such a huge head count to meet its power demand and also for reducing its dependency upon coal, gas and oil based energy. The move is much in favour of our planet and eco-system and is encouraging for other developing & developed nations to adopt it aggressively. We'll discuss more about the India's solar power regime in coming posts too. I'll love to hear your thought over this story in comments.

Green Veggies Way

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now. ~Chinese Proverb

Its volunteering based choice for "Green Plates" i.e to go for veggie, but important and essential for continued survival of life on the planet or even the life of planet itself. Some good facts to consider in order to make your wish and will even more strong in case if you have been thinking of going this way since long..


Lessen global warming

  • The single most important step an individual can take to reduce global warming [faster than any other means] is to adopt a vegetarian diet.Global warming poses one of the most serious threats to the global environment ever faced in human history. 
  • As per UN reports raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined.

Avoid excessive CO2 production

  • According to the UN Report, when emissions from land use and land use change are included, the livestock sector accounts for 9 per cent of CO2 deriving from human-related activities, but produces a much larger share of even more harmful greenhouse gases.3

Reduce methane/nitrous oxide production

Animal farms are responsible for 37% of the total methane (23 times as warming as CO2) generated by human activity. With methane emissions causing nearly half of the planet’s human-induced warming, methane reduction must be a priority.


Save large amounts of water

  • Estimates of the water required to produce a kilo of beef vary, from 13,000 liters up to 100,000 liters. now can understand better..

Avoid further pollution of our rivers/oceans

  • Pollution of our waterways is caused by animal waste, antibiotics and hormones entering the water cycle alongside chemicals from tanneries, fertilizers, and the pesticides used to spray feed crops.

Help ensure environmental sustainability

  • There were approximately 6.5 billion people living on earth in 2005, and as the world’s population continues to grow, our requirement for food will also increase. Worldwide food production requires 30% of the total soil available, 20% of fossil fuel energy and a major part of the fresh water flow. Raising cattle is one of the most damaging.

Reduce destruction of topsoil & tropical rainforest

  • Thirty percent of the earth’s entire land surface—a massive 70% of all agricultural land—is used for rearing farmed animals. Much of this is grazing land that otherwise would host natural habitats such as valuable rainforests. And, of the entire world’s land suitable for growing crops that would otherwise directly feed humans, a third of it is used to produce feed for farmed animals.
Degraded earth and planet


Reduce destruction of wildlife habitats & endangered species

  • The livestock industry is responsible for widespread deforestation and cultivation of vast tracks of land. Wide-spread cultivation of the land ruins animals’ natural habitat and forces millions of them to be evicted from their homes each year, causing long-term harm to our wildlife.
Now does any of the fact above appeal well and firms your belief anymore to go veggies. Reveal below in comments.Don't worry nobody is staring you !
and no one is gonna know that you no longer remains __?__ anymore. Please fill in the blanks.

Awesome Green Results & [R]evolution.

The Earth Did Not End On December 21

world did not end on 21 december
Now towards the end of the year - and since the earth did not end on December 21 - it´s a good time to reflect about "Green Sustainability“and "caring about our environment". Most of the time we fear about the end of the planet earth or world because Mayan calender predicts that or because of any other great ancient civilization's prediction not because of the damage we as human being has made to the entire ecosystem and environment.

From the very beginning of human evolution we always keep on relying on nature and natural resources for survival and when this entire process has shifted from the righteous consumption of natural resources to massive and blind consumption of natural resources, we never noticed it. The world noticed it when it start receiving threats from nature but still it did not find the magnitude of threats as dangerous as Mayan calender has, to prompt it to take serious curative actions for the damage it has made to the earth and its ecosystem.

We never seems as frightened from the massive deforestation, unethical mining process, unethical natural destruction, huge green house gas production, global warming, melting glaciers and rising temperature as this Mayan calender has made us from the last 2 years. Every one is discussing and sharing whatever he or she is finding about this Mayan mystery online and offline on Facebook , Twitter and and watching on YouTube which is still to validate but we are not worried about any of the above counted means of destruction which are solid and potential enough to bring the world to an end and do not require any validation.

Its time to be extra careful about our lifestyle, ecofriendly practices and sustainable growth in order to never let such a moment to arise even. Government and authorities should leave this blame of "who caused more and who caused less" and should act proactively for safe and ever green planet rather than just discussing the issue.

Lets start considering a great way of ecofriendly life now onward so that the end of the world will have to wait forever..!

Wishing you a peaceful and sustainable season´s break and a caring 2013.
