Abstract:
The Earth's climate has been changing continually, for hundreds of thousands of years because of ever increasing population, rapid industrialization and overconsumption of natural resources. However, the most alarming change is the rate of this change, specifically that's of earth's temperature. These climatic changes have serious repercussions such as increased incidence of extreme weather conditions like droughts, storms, landslides, tsunamis, famines, rising in sea levels, shifting of seasons, changing agricultural patterns, increasing global temperatures etc. Resultantly, there is a problem of an acute energy crisis all over the world. Natural Resources are both renewable and non-renewable in nature. Non-Renewable resources such a coal, petroleum, natural gas, etc. are available on earth in limited quantity and will diminish soon. Also these resources release harmful greenhouse gases, which cause environmental degradation and global warming. So there is a greater need to shift towards renewable sources of energy such as, wind energy, tidal energy, solar energy etc., which are environmental friendly and are abundant in quantity. Also, it results in little to no emission of greenhouse gases, consequently helps in mitigating the climate change. Government of India has begun to recognize the importance of solar energy to the country's economic growth and its ability to transform India. The Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) is a major initiative of Union and State government launched in 2010 under the brand name 'Solar India', which aims at making India's economic development energy efficient. Chandigarh is one of the cities which have been selected to be developed as a Model Solar City by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. Under this scheme, CREST is the executing agency for the installation of rooftop based Solar Photovoltaic Plants in Chandigarh. Therefore, the objectives of the paper are to study the initiatives taken by the Govt. of India under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) in the direction of developing renewable energy through solar power in India and to evaluate the role of CREST in its implementation. The findings of the study will be beneficial for the policy makers and for future research.
