Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the global energy sector is witnessing a sea change due to the current pandemic and this will create a huge opportunity for growth, entrepreneurship and employment in the Indian energy sector.

Delivering the eighth convocation address at Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University PDPU Gandhinagar through video conferencing, Mr. Modi said that India is marching ahead with the target to reduce the carbon footprint by 30 to 35 percent.

The Prime Minister said, graduating during the time of global crisis is a big challenge for the young students, but the potential and capabilities of the students are much bigger than the global challenges. He appealed to the young students to transform their sense of responsibility into the sense of opportunity.

The Prime Minister said a special fund has been created for helping start up ecosystem in the field of energy security: Mr. Modi said that the world has high hopes and expectations from India and India's hope and expectations are in turn connected with the young students. He said that we should not only march ahead but we should march ahead much faster.

Earlier, Prime Minister Modi inaugurated five state-of-the-art facilities to mark the eighth convocation of Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University PDPU at Gandhinagar today through virtual mode. These include 45 MW production of monocrystalline solar photovoltaic panels set up by GEDA at the cost of Rs. 17 crore.
