While inaugurating the National Biogas Convention at IIT Delhi, the minister said there can be no two opinions about the fact that in order to reach energy to the last mile, we have to ensure the decentralized power production across the country. He informed that India is already the world leader in small-scale and low-cost biogas purification technology.

The minister assured that he was committed to the National Biogas and National Fertilizer Mission and would provide all his support to facilitate the mission. He urged the participants to create a framework for facilitating scientific exploration in the country.

The minister stressed on establishing a panel of scientists and bureaucrats who can plan integrated research efforts of various universities, research institutes and the ministry.

Goyal said biogas offers an important solution to the present energy crisis in rural areas. Besides being a clean and important source of energy for cooking, it is an environmentally green and clean technology which can create employment opportunities for youngsters and can add to the income of villagers.

The minister also said in larger perspective, these small entities can strengthen India’s commitment to the global climatic issues like reducing carbon emissions, climate change and others. Through these biogas plants, we can demonstrate that India’s efforts to leave behind greener planet is the result of our age-old heritage of discouraging wasteful consumption.

On the occasion, Goyal also released souvenir on the National Convention. The 3-day National Biogas Convention,2015, is being organised by Biogas Development and Training Centre at IIT Delhi and supported by various ministries of Government of India . The Convention is being attended by researchers and other stakeholders.
