By Super Admin

Davos (Switzerland), Jan 28 (ANI): Union Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma on Thursday emphasized at the need to enhance the usage of renewable and nuclear energy in the fuel mix.

Sharma was speaking at a session on Rethinking Energy Security in the World Economic Forum here.

"India had developed a National Action Plan on climate change, which laid a special thrust on solar technologies," Sharma said.

He further stated that the food security, climate change and energy security cannot be treated in isolation and are integrally linked.

Sharma also outlined India's civil nuclear energy initiative citing it as a major milestone for ensuring sustainable and clean development path for an emerging economy such as India.

In his address, Sharma also highlighted that the world needs to work in a collaborative manner to develop and disseminate technologies which not only assure that the concerns of climate change are addressed but also respond to the aspiration of billions in the developing world.

He mentioned that the energy security had a completely different connotation for the poor and deprived in the developing world that still are denied access to grid-based electricity. (ANI)
