energy,” Indian Power MinisterPiyush
Goyal said in an interview. “I can’t tell the people of India that we’ll burden
you with high costs because the West has polluted the world, now India will pay
for it. Not acceptable to us.”
Minister Narendra Modi’s government has sent mixed signals about its stance
toward climate change, adopting aggressive targets for adopting renewable
energy while at the same time pointing the finger of blame at richer nations
for causing global warming.
officials coordinating climate policy have met with their U.S. and Chinese
counterparts in recent weeks to discuss the December talks in Paris, and India
has said it will make a pledge in the near future for how it will act under the
deal that is due to emerge. It isn’t clear whether India will commit to a date
to start rolling backgreenhouse gas emissions, and U.S. officials have said
they don’t expect such a pledge from India this year.

goal of 175-gigawatt capacity to be built over the next seven years, Goyal
said. The country needs cheap power to aid development, he said.

India intends to almost quintuple its clean energy installations to 175

billion kilowatt-hour units of power consumption annually by eliminating less
efficient incandescent and CFL bulbs over the next three years.
