New Environment Minister lays stress on solar energy, cycling

New Delhi, July 8 (IANS) Minister of State for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Anil Madhav Dave on Friday emphasised the need to adopt the three-fold mantra of ‘Sun, Cycle and Saving’ in the energy sector for clean and green energy.

Dave, who assumed the charge of the ministry on Wednesday, said this while inaugurating a conference on Clean & Green Transport for Delhi NCR – Alternatives and Solutions.

“Solar energy is the energy of the future, and research and development (R&D) needs to be done in this sector, as it will revolutionise the energy sector,” Dave said.

The minister advocated cycling as the best mode of transport for short distances and cited additional health benefits as another factor of cycling.

He said, “Energy should not be used carelessly, as energy saved is energy produced. Individuals must lead by example in saving energy.”

The Environment Minister also pointed out that those involved in R&D must keep in mind the difference between the success achieved in laboratories and success while implementing the solutions on the road.
