The world’s second largest coal producer has become the world in a hurry to switch to a cleaner and more energy-efficient economy.
India has a history of exporting coal, and India’s government says it is the world leader in coal.
Its coal exports are estimated to be $1.4 trillion a year, according to the World Coal Association.
The country is the second-largest exporter, after China, and its exports of coal were estimated to reach $4.6 trillion in 2014.
But in the past three years, India has become more focused on a new plan to shift to a more green economy and is investing in technologies that make coal less dirty and greener.
It is also building a new coal plant in the eastern state of West Bengal, which could eventually be able to burn coal for about 50 years, according the State Coal Corporation.
The state is also working on a plan to reduce its reliance on coal, including using wind power and solar energy.
India is also moving to invest in renewable energy, and it is investing heavily in wind power.
The plan also includes building a “green power hub” at the border with Bangladesh that will create a grid of transmission lines that will bring electricity to the country’s largest city, New Delhi.
India is now the world number one exporter and is in the process of building a $1 trillion investment plan.
The move to invest more in renewables and clean energy will be welcomed by environmentalists and by companies that depend on coal.
“India is taking a big step towards a clean energy future.
The government is going a long way towards that.
India’s climate goals are ambitious,” said Sangeeta Tiwari, executive director of Greenpeace India.
India’s coal consumption has been increasing at a fast rate in recent years, and in the years that followed coal was not seen as a major contributor to the environment, even though the country produces a third of the worlds emissions.
But with coal production projected to peak in 2020 and 2030, some environmental groups and environmentalists are calling on India to invest billions in clean energy projects.
The goal of the green agenda is to generate jobs and economic growth and avoid climate change, said Prabhu Nair, a professor of environmental economics at the University of Pennsylvania.
“The coal industry needs a long-term strategy to invest,” he said.
The push for a more efficient coal industry is a new and welcome development for India, said Manish Singh, director of the Energy and Environment Program at the India Institute of Development Studies in New Delhi, who helped to develop the countrys climate change agenda.
“It’s a welcome move for India,” Singh said.
Greenpeace India, a group that aims to combat environmental destruction, was one of the first organizations to make a public call for a “Green Coal Economy.”
“The government needs to invest on a carbon-neutral energy transition by 2020 and build a Green Coal Hub to power India,” the group said in a statement.
The government, however, has yet to do that.
