The Secretary mentioned the recently launched PM Surya Ghar: Muft Bijli Yojana and the surge of registrations from the public on the National Portal for participation in the scheme. He emphasiSed the requirement for skilled workforce at various levels for effective implementation of the programmes and schemes of the Government and in achieving the targeted capacities and opportunities available, for women to assume a larger role in the renewable energy sector.


The Secretary also mentioned the necessity for gender-specific employment data at various levels within the sector. He highlighted the ongoing primary survey led by the Ministry, in collaboration with NRDC and CEEW, focusing on job opportunities and the representation of women in the renewable energy workforce.
