Kerala can meet 95% power needs via renewables by 2050: Report
By 2050, Kerala can meet over 95 per cent of its energy demand using renewable energy sources, says the Energy Report - Kerala, prepared by WWF-India and the World Institute of Sustainable Energy (WISE) Pune.
The report analyses the potential of various renewable energy sources in Kerala, after modelling energy demand scenarios for various sectors for the projected time period.
One significant contributor to the future renewable energy mix - and for the moment unpopular, at least in the current political scene - is solar power. The estimation of solar power potential in Kerala, as per the report, is around 44,456 mw.
