“For so many years, Indian companies have loved the colour green, but only when it meant the US dollar! But Suzlon is one rare Indian company, which saw the potential of ‘green’, as in environmental friendly businesses, well ahead of time, ventured into wind energy and went on an expansion spree with success.” – by Vipin Agnihotri

Challenges in moving towards Renewable Energy

Most of us will happily switch over to Renewable Energy if its available at around the same price. Some Renewable Energy producers are seeking the “cap and trade system” to boost the eco-friendly energy. But a bill to cap carbon dioxide is not easy – conventional energy companies have made deep investments. For example, Mike Morris, the CEO of AEP (American Electric Power), feels the use of coal is still needed to meet the base energy requirements. Still, given the thrust for green and environmental friendly energy, and with certain VCs willing to invest in them in a phase by phase approach, we can be sure to see some good innovations within a 5-10 years.
