  • Type: Action plan
  • Status: Completed

The pace of growth and development in India has pushed the demand for energy and resourcesin parallel. With more than 30% of the total population in India residing in cities, the need to
satiate energy requirements of these burgeoning centers of demand is crucial to sustainable development. The ‘Development of Solar Cities’ programme by Ministry of New and
Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India is aimed at creating self-sustaining cities by leveraging the immense solar potential through renewable energy and several other energy
efficiency projects in order to curb conventional energy demand by 10% in the next five years. Envisioned as a roadmap for Indian cities to chart their individual path of sustainable development encompassing formulation of renewable energy and energy efficiency strategies, this Master Plan is developed in support from the MNRE to provide a direction for development of solar cities in India.
