In the ongoing energy transition, Renewable Energy plays an important role. The deployment of advance renewable energy solution should consider Energy-Water-Food security. Hence, it is imperative to use same piece of land for Energy Generation, Food Production and saving Water losses. This panel will deliberate on the way forward for Role of Agri-Renewables in India's Journey of Energy Transition and Sustainable Farming.
