Out of the most populous countries as of January 2019 India’s ranked the second highest of
all the countries. India has 1.368 billion citizens which is way more than The population of a
few small countries clubbed together. An interesting fact says that the yearly growth rate is
1.18% and represents almost 17.74% of the worlds population. The country is expected to
have more than 1.383 billion, 1.512 billion, 1.605 billion, 1.658 billion people by the end of
2020, 2030, 2040, and 2050, respectively. India has that country which has the highest
number of people to the world than any other nation and the fun fact here is that some states
in India have the population equal to the population of small countries around the globe
With the second highest population already and advancing to words and even more
population in the future times India has an increasing energy demand to fulfil. The size and
growth of a country‘s population determines the energy requirements of a country and
significantly affects the demand of energy .
To prepare for the generations to come and to be able to cater to their energy requirements
India will have to rapid work towards advancing its technologies and switching to renewable
sources of energy so that India does not exhaust its natural resources completely. The
Country will have to go through a global transition rapidly to be able to achieve sustainable
growth and also to avoid catastrophic climate change.
It’s important India realises how are you to renewable energy sources are to the country as
this will be able to provide it’s big population the kind of energy it requires without causing
much harm to the environment and without exhausting any natural resources. Traditional
sources of energy cause harmful gas solutions which further increase the already existing
environmental challenges it makes the environmental health worse and causes pollution at
an alarming rate.
Renewable sources of energy are going to be acting as saviours. India has successfully
made efforts towards switching to renewable sources of energy even in the recent years.
The people of India are already well aware of the benefits of saving energy and using the
natural resources right. Awareness of saving energy has been promoted among citizens to
increase the use of solar, wind, biomass, waste, and hydropower energies. It is evident that
clean energy is less harmful and often cheaper.
Coming back to India’s population and energy consumption in future, a verified report
suggests that the growth of India’s energy consumption will be the fastest among all
significant economies by 2040, with coal meeting most of this demand followed by
renewable energy. Lesser-known fact about electricity production from traditional sources
such as coal oil or natural gas is that they have contributed to 1/3 of global greenhouse gas
emissions leading to harmful environments for us all. It is essential to raise the standard of
living by providing them with cleaner air and a less polluted environment for their lifestyle to
