In 'white gold' rush, India kick-starts talks with lithium-rich nations
Jammu and Kashmir's reserve might be present with a large amount of lithium, but the current amount is insufficient to match with the world's top reserves of Lithium.
For India to become self-reliant in the field of solar energy storage and EV manufacturing without being dependent on China for EV battery supplies, it is important to own more such Lithium reserves and enhance its presence in overseas lithium mines.
Solar lighting system operates on electricity from batteries, charged through the use of solar photovoltaic panels. It is composed of a battery, solar panel, LED lamp, and charge controller. The stored energy is collected in a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery used later to produce lighting at night. The rapid infrastructure development in all sectors of India is pushing local solar light manufacturers to compete and deliver innovative solar lighting products at low prices to increase their presence in the market.
