Energy insecurity has always been a problem in India, where power supply is unreliable or even non-existent in parts of the world's second most populous country.
Narendra Modi, the new prime minister, said he believed renewable energy was the answer.
Andrea Nerhoff reports.
The population is about 1 person.
Two billion, India naturally needs a lot of power.
Although China is the fourth largest energy consumer in the world, behind China, the United States and Russia, more than 300 million Chinese citizens have no access to electricity.
India's unstable electricity situation was highlighted in July 2012, when widespread blackouts left nearly half of its population in darkness for a few days.
At that time, the authorities blamed this on high demand.
When demand peaks, power is overdrawn.
As a result, two or three power grids tripped simultaneously.
"But India is increasingly embracing the concept of renewable energy and developing policies to shift India's dependence on new, more environmentally friendly energy sources.
Since 2009, the Chinese government has been committed to achieving the target of 20,000 MW solar energy by 2022.
It is the fifth largest producer of wind power, with one wind turbine.
6% of the country's energy.
The Democratic Party government of Narendra Modi, the recently elected prime minister, has also promised to solve this problem, with Mr Modi promising at least one light bulb for every family by 2019.
He believes solar energy is a key answer to India's electricity problem.
Environment Minister Prakash Jawadekar said that sustainability is the core of the People's Party's policy.
"We will maintain a balance between development and environmental protection to ensure that both occur at the same time.
This is not the opposite of development and environment.
This is a development case with environmental protection.
Prime Minister Modi has a history of renewable energy and supported this cause during his tenure as Chief Minister of Gujarat.
Since his election in May, he has established an investment portfolio of new and renewable energy sources and announced plans to build new solar power plants in Rajasthan, Ladak, Jammu and Kashmir.
But at least in the near future, India's energy demand may continue to exceed its supply. The International Energy Agency reports that India will become the world's largest energy user in the early 1920s.
Pollination energy is Australia-
Visit poor Indian communities and provide them with solar energy-powered lights.
Scott Watkins, a volunteer at the organization, said that it not only keeps communities alive, but also makes them prosperous.
"When we visited the community, the man bought a solar lamp.
He came and brought the light into his house for the first time.
These women use their solar lights to sell things or make clothes at home.
Lighting has a tremendous impact on people in these communities.
However, India's development towards renewable energy will not soon reduce its dependence on coal. -
Thermal power generation.
Instead, the IEA says India will become the world's largest coal user by the early 1920s.
This may be good news for Australian coal exporters, who are facing a slowdown in coal demand from China.
