Could Tamil Nadu's Energy Policies Serve as a Model for the Rest of India?

As a country, India has ambitious goals for moving to cleaner energy sources, yet policy issues have marred implementation. At the state level, Tamil Nadu has been more successful: The state was already producing 16 GW of its energy from renewable sources in 2020, mostly wind and solar, and experts say it has the potential to double that number in the next 10 years. 

So, does Tamil Nadu have the highest potential for renewable energy out of all the states in India, and how do we get there? Green explores that question in his latest documentary.
