The new government will soon come out with a National Energy Policy that will focus on balancing power generation through conventional and non-conventional sources, President Pranab Mukherjee said today.
Addressing the first Joint Sitting of the Parliament, Mukherjee said: “My government will come out with a comprehensive National Energy Policy and focus on development of energy related infrastructure, human resource and technology.”
The aim of the government will be to “substantially augment”electricity generation capacity through a judicious mix of conventional and non-conventional sources, he added.
The government will also work towards expanding the National Solar Mission.
