As the country gears up for the centenary of the start of World War II, the government is mulling to move away from petroleum-based fuels to natural gas, the country’s major energy source.
The move is expected to have wide support among the Indian public, given that more than half of India’s population is dependent on electricity, which is often unreliable.
The move is also expected to boost the economy, and could create jobs.
But how to make the switch to the renewable energy sources?
According to an article published in the Times of Israel on Sunday, India is considering converting some coal-fired power plants into natural gas-burning plants.
The article said the government may also convert some of the power stations in the national capital to run on hydrogen and other energy sources.
While this will be welcome news for the country, it will also likely be a tough sell in the US.
India imports more than 70% of its fuel from the United States.
In addition, many Americans think the US government is too weak on climate change and is not doing enough to curb CO2 emissions.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken steps to shift the country away from fossil fuels.
He has set up the National Fuel Cell Corporation to provide hydrogen and electric vehicles to the country.
But India will need a lot more than just the hydrogen fuel cell in order to achieve its goal.
The Times of Japan reported that the government will also be considering moving away from coal power plants by 2019.
But the move will take a lot of time, as India has to convert a lot.
This will take decades.
India is also trying to diversify its energy sources, and will eventually switch to renewable sources.
