Ques: Which one of the following options is correct regarding energy and electricity consumption in India to global consumption?
- December 11, 2015 President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee inaugurated Festival of Energy ‘Umang 2015’.
- The theme of Umang 2015 was – “Nayi Zindagi ki Umang, Swachh Urja ke Sang”.
- This festival has organized in Dr. Rajendra Prasad Sarvodaya Vidyalaya School located in President’s Estate.
- During the occasion Address by the President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee expressed following thought :
- India supports around 17% of the world’s population, but its energy and electricity consumption is just around 5% of the world consumption.
- Therefore, we as a country, have a huge responsibility and challenge to meet our developmental requirements and at the same time ensure that we remain committed to clean energy.
- I will like to see in future many more government schools going ‘green through solar power’ and contributing to the clean energy movements in the country.
