After the Paris Agreement, the world as a whole has recognized that climate change is a serious issue and it needs to be addressed globally in a mission mode.

This was stated by Piyush Goyal, an Indian Renewable Energy minister. He was addressing the delegates at the 3-day 8th World Renewable Energy Technology Congress in Delhi today.

The annual conference is planned in the backdrop of India’s vision on achieving “Energy Independence and Power for all by 2022”. It focusses on new Green Technologies to ensure clean, reliable and affordable renewable energy supplies.

Addressing the gathering, Goyal noted that the last 10 to 15 years have seen a rapid decline in the quality of atmosphere due to increasing greenhouse gas emissions globally and it has become probably the largest challenge before humanity today.
