Comments of MNRE on NMEEE mission document

Renewable energy sources, which afford several benefits like reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, sustainability in the context of decreasing global reserves of fossil fuels, suitability in meeting diffused and decentralized needs will play a critical role in the future economic growth of our country. There is complete complementarity in implementation and approach of energy efficiency and use of renewable energy. The role and mandate of both MNRE and BEE is to ensure energy conservation and to minimize the use of conventionally generated electricity. The NMEEE, which is one of the 8 Missions under the NAPCC, must therefore draw on the synergies with Renewable Energy while it draws up the implementation framework.
