Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Thursday virtually participated in the ‘Perovskite Society of India Meet-2023’ based on solar energy from Khatima at IIT Roorkee. He congratulated the team of IIT Roorkee and Perovskite Society of India for organizing this seminar with the aim of promoting solar energy. The Chief Minister said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is continuously working to achieve complete security and independence in the energy sector by promoting alternative energy resources in India. Today, a seminar based on the evolutionary thinking of energy security and self-reliance is being organized in Roorkee. Continuous guidance is being given by the Prime Minister to increase participation in the country’s progress through solar energy and other alternative energy sources.
The Chief Minister said that due to favorable weather there are immense possibilities of developing projects related to solar energy in Uttarakhand. The state government is making efforts to bring “energy revolution” in the state by proper use of the immense resources of solar energy. Solar energy can prove to be very effective in meeting energy needs in remote areas of Uttarakhand. Availability of solar energy at affordable rates can be extremely beneficial for the residents of hilly and inaccessible areas. This is the reason why the use of solar energy in inaccessible areas is increasing day by day.
The Chief Minister said that to make Uttarakhand the leading state of the country by 2025, the state government is moving forward with a resolution without any option. It is the priority of the government to ensure uninterrupted power supply to every household in the state. To fulfill this, the state government is committed to promote the use of solar energy in the state. He expressed hope that the dignitaries interested in the field of science would give their valuable suggestions for the efficient operation of solar energy in Uttarakhand through the seminar. He said that this seminar would prove helpful in developing a roadmap. With which we will be able to make maximum use of solar energy in the state of Uttarakhand as well as in the whole of India.
On this occasion, MLA Roorkee Pradeep Batra, Director of IIT Roorkee Prof. through virtual medium. K.K. Pant, the coordinator of the seminar, Prof. Soumitra Satpati and scientists from different states were present.
