MoC and MNRE to work together for advancing clean energy sources

The Ministry of Coal (MoC) and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) have collaborated to advance the adoption of sustainable energy sources.

In a meeting between the ministries, it was decided that the MNRE will offer technical expertise, policy development, and capacity-building support. Simultaneously, the MoC will contribute by providing land, capital, and overseeing the execution of solar energy, green hydrogen, and other renewable energy initiatives. The central public sector undertakings under the MoC, Coal India Limited, NLC India Limited, and Singareni Collieries Company Limited, have initiated a net zero plan aligned with the Panchamrit targets. They have already implemented solar energy generation capacity exceeding 1,600 MW. Additionally, efforts are underway at various stages for an additional 500 MW in solar project developments.
