July 19, 2021 |

In India, the ANI news agency reports Union Minister Piyush Goyal said 20% ethanol blending will be achieved as soon as 2023/24, even ahead of the latest 2025 target that was brought ahead further from 2030. He made the update in the context of a wider discussion on India’s overall renewable energy plans, which aims to achieve 175GW by 2022 and 450GW by 2030. In addition to pushing for up to 100% ethanol fuels in vehicles, the government is also looking to introduce electric vehicles charged entirely by renewable energy, at least during daylight hours, as well as hydro and hydrogen as energy sources.
