Behind camels grazing on dry grass on the edge of the Thar Desert lies an oasis of blue solar panels, forming a giant solar farm in Bhadla that is the cornerstone of India's plan to become a leader in clean energy.
India remains the world's third-largest emitter of carbon, and produces about 70% of its electricity in coal-fired power plants.
However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced last Monday that 50% of the energy that India will depend on by 2030 will be clean, stressing that India seeks to achieve carbon neutrality by the year 2070.
The Bhadla farm is located in the desert state of Rajasthan, on an area the size of the Republic of San Marino, and receives 325 days of sunshine every year.
