As per the Managing Director Pradip Kumar Das of Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) Limited., the country’s renewable energy sector has the potential to employ 10 lakh people by 2030.

At a conference on renewable energy management for cooperatives, he said that India’s renewable energy (RE) sector “could potentially employ around 10 lakh people by 2030, which would be ten times more than the current workforce of an estimated 1.1 lakh employed by the sector.”

Mr Das also emphasised several steps the IREDA had taken to advance the waste-to-energy industry.

The Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) has increased the exposure cap for waste-to-energy projects to 70% of the project cost, reports The Financial Express.
