All large 'Gaushalas' across the country will soon have their own biogasification equipment and bottling unit to make good use of bio waste, New and Renewable Energy Minister Piyush Goyal said on Monday.
"I have instructed officials to come up with an improvised scheme, which will help Gaushalas to make good use of cow dung for generating biogas," Goyal said while answering a question during a video conference.
He said bio waste has huge potential, which can generate biogas usable for cooking food. It can also help Gaushalas earn some money, he added.
On solar energy front, the minister said that if Rajasthan government waives of intra-state transmission charges, solar energy sector can attract investment in Rajasthan, which will generate income and employment and benefit other states as well.
The minister hailed the achievements and initiatives of the Ministry of Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy made in the last three years.
"Achieving 24×7 affordable clean power for all and ensuring optimum utilisation of natural resources are critical for 'Ujwal Bharat'.
"Over the past three years, the ministry has made considerable progress towards achieving this goal under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi," Goyal said.
