India ranks third among 40 countries in EY’s Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index. This is a direct result of the strong backing and focus by the government on promoting renewable energy and implementation of projects in a time bound manner. With the Make In India drive and various global clean energy initiatives the demand for Renewable Energy is only rising and the Indian government’s initiatives are only complimenting the growth of organisations in this sector.
