NEW DELHI (Commodity Online) : India’s energy efficiency is better than that of the US and is likely to grow faster than any other country, according to international NGO The Climate Group (TCG).

In a report, TCG said India’s Clean Revolution makes the compelling argument that by prioritizing low carbon development now, India is creating a better, more secure, and more prosperous future for its more than one billion people.

India’s share of the $2.2 trillion market for low carbon goods and services in 2020 could be as much as $135 billion, creating 10.5 million green jobs, and is likely to grow faster than any other country, the report added.

India is making more progress than US on energy efficiency, and this market is expected to treble to INR 351,000 crore ($77 billion) in the next ten years.

The report also said the country is now fifth in the world in terms of wind energy production.

The report suggested that bold low carbon policies will increase India’s energy independence and help provide access to energy to those who still lack it.

Low cost labor and highly skilled manufacturing base will make India a major hub for clean technologies and the rate of increase of India’s private investment in clean energy will be 736% over the next ten years, three times that of US or China.
