The hunt for possible energy resources that are renewable and might perhaps bring down the GHGs emission has been carried out for decades. The consumption of bio-ethanol in India, the 6th largest producer of biofuels globally has drawn the attention of those interested in sustainable climate. Indian production and consumption of ethanol, a renewable energy source, that generates comparatively a lower carbon footprint in comparison to conventional fuels, indicates the promising role of bio-fuels in regulating and mitigating the global temperature. Could ethanol be the potential substitute for a sustainable and greener future?
Evaluating projected changes in solar energy potential over the Indian subcontinent using various climate models, the study sends out a clear message: solar radiation or production will decrease over most of the active solar farming regions, especially north-western India, where the maximum number of solar farms are located. This shift in the frequency of solar radiation in a negative direction can be attributed to an increase in total cloud cover.
In Bengaluru it is mandatory by law to get environment clearance for large real estate development projects. Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) and Environment Management Plan (EMP) are the governing bodies that are authorized to do it. But the builders in Bengaluru, are making their way out of this legal compulsion. In the procedure, detailed questions are required to answer some questions It becomes convenient for them to fleece through them. Since the officers conducting them are usually the same they end-up copying answers from one project to another, regardless of the location and biodiversity requirements.

The UN in a historic moment declared the right to access to a clean environment as a basic human right on 8th October 2021. The resolution passed after a unanimous victory of 43 votes in favour, holds the access to a healthy and sustainable environment as a universal right.
One of the few cities in Europe to adopt a spatial plan for making its districts sustainable, energy-efficient, and climate-resilient is Karlovac, the first city in Croatia. The Regional Energy Agency of Northwestern Croatia provided assistance to Karlovac, one of Croatia's pioneers in the energy revolution (REGEA).
A recent study has revealed that the adoption of decentralized renewable energy (DRE) technologies in India's agriculture and textile sectors could have a significant impact on the livelihoods of approximately 37 million people. These DRE technologies encompass various solutions, such as solar-powered textile manufacturing units, biomass-based cold solar storages, and micro solar pumps
Students from Delhi University’s Jesus and Mary College (JMC) in Delhi have built an eco-friendly toilet at the Kamla Market Police Station. The toilet is made from sustainable materials, such as eco-bricks, fly ash, and single-use plastic bottles. It also features energy-saving features, such as motion-sensor lights and a solar-powered water heater.
