An increased push for energy efficiency, renewable energy technology, electric mobility — along with the growing digitalization movement and a universal carbon pricing structure — would speed up the carbon-free future and the rise of a global middle class we desperately need. We can and must all do our part.
Artificial intelligence is here and being rapidly commercialized, with new applications being created not just for manufacturing but also for energy, healthcare, and oil and gas. This will change how we all do business.
Energy consumption has to be managed by an intelligent grid when it comes to highly populated areas. Smart-grid technologies allow for the integration of renewable energy into the grid as well as energy from distributed sources.
Sustainability is not just about adopting the latest energy-efficient technologies or turning to renewable sources of power. Sustainability is the responsibility of every individual every day. It is about changing our behaviour and mindset to reduce power and water consumption, thereby helping to control emissions and pollution levels.
'Make in India' is great, but 'Make It Happen in India' is even greater. Make It Happen in India is more than manufacturing. It's about training, about education, about societal development and automation and engineering.
In the developed world, we are surrounded by electronics — from the computers on our desks to the smart phones in our pockets to the thermostats in our homes to our data in the virtual cloud.
