Guwahati, Feb 9(UNI) Assam Governor Banwarilal Purohit inaugurated a Conference on “Green Energy-Problems, Prospect and Strategic Planning for North East India”, which was jointly organised by Indian Federation of Green Energy, Assam Energy Development Agency and Assam Science Technology and Environment Council here today.
Inaugurating the conference, Purohit said the conference is being held when drastic changes in environment are taking place due to climate change. Therefore there is a need to accelerate application of Green Energy to stimulate the growth of the country, he said.
He also said attempt should be made to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels which pose a threat to our energy security.
The Governor added that of all the renewable energies, solar energy is the best and safest as it is very cheap. He said through research we need to find measures to reduce the cost of the instruments that produce solar energy.
Annasaheb MK Patil, former Minister of State of Rural Development and Honorary Vice-chairman , Indian Federation of Green Energy, present at the inaugural function, said North Eastern states have abundant resources to generate Green Energy and the present policy of the Central government to encourage green energy will lead to employment generation and utilization of ever increasing waste to generate energy.
