The PM said the first agenda was to raise the non-fossil fuel-based energy capacity of the country to 500 GW by 2030.
Also, by 2030, 50% of the country’s energy requirements would be met using renewable energy sources.
The country will reduce the total projected carbon emission by one billion tonnes between now and the year 2030.
The carbon intensity of the economy would be reduced to less than 45% by 2030, Modi said as the fourth point.
