Gujarat has always worked to give the nation a new direction through constant innovation and evolution. In keeping with this initiative, Gujarat’s tableau-themed ‘Clean-Green Energy Efficient Gujarat’ will be featured in the Republic Day National Parade at ‘Kartavyapath’ in New Delhi on January 26. By giving a message to the nation that Gujarat, using renewable energy sources and being economically efficient, is becoming a global guide with net zero emission and affordable and clean energy usage.
To counter this adverse situation and to achieve the goals of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), Gujarat has taken the lead in using renewable and non-conventional energy resources. In the year 2009, Gujarat created a separate department for Climate Change and started various projects powered by non-conventional energy sources: wind energy, solar energy, biological energy, and hydropower. Today, Gujarat is the leader in the production of non-conventional energy in the country.
The forefront of the tableau displays the world’s largest hybrid (solar and wind) renewable energy park taking shape at Khavda in Kutch, Gujarat. Recently, United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres visited Modhera, which has become self-sufficient in energy and highly praised the work of Gujarat.
Along with this, PM KUSUM (Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan) scheme has provided farmers with solar rooftop energy for irrigation and production on other assets, thus self-reliance in the energy sector and economic gains in the state and the energy revolution has been showcased.
Under the guidance of Avantika Singh Aulakh, Secretary, Information and Broadcasting Department, Government of Gujarat and R K Mehta, Director of Information, Arvind Patel, Additional Director of Information Pankaj Modi, and Sanjay Kachot, Deputy Director of Information are managing and contributing in this tableau formation presented annually by the Information Department of the Government of Gujarat.
