India faces a major energy crisis because of its rapid growth, but traditional energy sources won’t be enough to meet all future needs. This programme looks at sustainable alternatives. We visit Asia’s largest wind farm and look at who’s benefiting from this electricity generation. We then visit a bio gas plant and ask whether this renewable energy source is a solution better suited to meeting the needs of India’s rural population. We look at the problems the bio gas plant is seeking to address and find out how it has benefited the community, in particular the women.
