The Indian Government has said that there will be a major thrust on hydro sector by different ways to bring down cost of electricity from this renewable source.
Commenting on the issue, Power Minister Piyush Goyal told the media, "I shall be going later this week to Arunachal Pradesh also to review some of the power projects. In coming few months, we want to give major thrust by different ways to bring down the cost of hydro power."
"Hydro power is also renewable energy. We are working on a position paper after studying all international experiences, we will look very seriously to see whether these should be categories as renewable power," he added.
As per reports, in the present scenario, the small hydro projects up to 25 MW are treated as renewable energy while others do not get incentives being provided by the government for encouraging clean energy.
