The Indian government intends to shift national fuel consumption to renewable fuels and CBG.
To achieve this goal, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has launched the Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) initiative. Through SATAT, the government intends to establish 5,000 CBG plants across India by 2025, to produce 15 million tons of CGB.
The government is also providing financial incentives and subsidies to help farmers set up solar panels and CBG plants. The use of green fuel and CBG is also encouraged by the government.
