Telecom Sector To Look The Green Way as the Government Cracks the Whip

Telecom Sector To Look The Green Way as the Government Cracks the WhipThe GovT of India has accepted TRAI’s recommendations on approach towards Green Telecommunications.

Greenpeace has been consistently engaging with the telecom sector including the need for public disclosure of carbon emissions establishing clear targets for telecom towers to be powered by Renewable energy and phase out diesel consumption.

Mrinmoy Chattaraj, Climate and Energy Campaigner, Greenpeace India quoted “In the absence of tangible and substantive action by the sector, such a directive is certainly welcome” said .“However, the mandatory regime now needs to substantively scale up on ambition, to ensure a complete phase-out of diesel from the sector” he added.

In conclusion, Chattaraj said “While we have certainly been pushing hard for a mandatory regime, this is has come about, also as a result of progressive forces and sectoral business associations playing a constructive role in pushing for positive change.”

    Merc :
    Govt should put extra subsidy tax on Diesel purchased by Telecom operators. that should motivate companies to try other means for power.

    even after that HSD & DG maintence would be more affordable than renewable energy.

    Nice but very very expensive. Renewable energy is dream for india. Agreed that all the resources are available in Indian territory like sunlight, wind etc but to accumulate these things as energy all d equipment need to import wich is looks very expensive, Govt need to produce these equipment in India then they need to think to utilize these resources, importing these equipments on huge basis will create benefits to exporters instead of our country. In short good decision @ wrong time. They first need to allow that companies in India to set up their factories in our own country with 100% tax exemption then it would be best for our country only targetting to mobile towers is very cheap thinking it should be for all levels like hospital, govt offices & even workshops etc.
