Sawant said that Goa will achieve 100 per cent renewable energy-based electricity supply by 2050 at the latest, and that Goa is on the path of optimally harnessing solar power and the state Solar Policy is focused on household generation of clean energy. He said: “We have already increased solar power generation sevenfold since 2019. A strategic roadmap for transforming Goa’s electricity sector is already in place, and we will soon introduce several renewable energy and energy efficiency interventions to decarbonise the state.”

Saward appealed to G20 countries to play a proactive role in making Goa’s Clean Energy Roadmap a reality and an example for the world. He said: “Be it in the form of a pilot demonstration of clean energy technologies and practices; an innovative service delivery model; or a long-term strategic partnership; I assure you of all possible assistance from the government of Goa.”
