These changes are attributed to government policies that have lifted people out of poverty and improved their quality of life while addressing climate commitments through increased efficiency and new technologies.

Other assessments about India: Over the past five years in India, solar PV has accounted for nearly 60% of new generation capacity.

 Other assessments about the World: Fossil fuel share in the global energy supply is projected to reduce from around 80% to 73% by 2030. Global energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions will peak by 2025.
