Jharkhand (‘State’) is bestowed with significant reserves of fossil fuels, which supported India’s economic growth and development for several years now. The State contributes ~19 percent of annual coal production in India. However, continued dependency on fossil fuels has brought adverse effects on the environment such as air pollution, land degradation, impact on local ecosystem, among others. India, eyeing to be the fastest-growing economy, has shown serious commitments towards adopting low-carbon and sustainable development pathways. The State is committed to supporting India’s concerted action against climate change by reducing its reliance on fossil fuels and diversifying the energy mix with various renewable energy sources, which would also improve the State’s energy security and provide sustainable livelihood opportunities to its people.
