More than sixty delegates are participating in this science conference on the theme “Clean Energy for a Green Future” as a part of the G-20 Summit.
Speaking on the occasion, Ajay Sood, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India, in his inaugural address said that the world is faced with unprecedented issues and they require urgent action to secure the future.
He said that these issues cannot be kept pending for further. Sood alsl said that the conference will discuss three sub-themes, the first of which is related to green hydrogen. This topic is attracting countries all over the world.
He also said that just as ocean-based technology can help humans harvest large amounts of energy from tidal waves and store new generation energy, it shows us how far we have to go in this direction with the use of lithium electrochemistry.
During the presidential address, the Indian side referred to the Prime Minister’s statement that innovation is important not only to combat climate change, but also to bring about an equitable resolution of climate-related issues.
