The world’s second most populous country has been making headlines in a big way the last couple of weeks.
For starters, India just concluded an historic election season earlier this month. With a population of over 1.2 billion people—almost a fifth of the world’s population—and a voter turnout of an estimated 553.8 million people, India’s 2014 election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the biggest exercise in democracy ever.
Modi, who is affiliated with the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party), ran for office on a platform of economic development. In fact, even before news of his landslide win reached some remote corners of the large nation, BJP officials promised to invest in enough clean energy sources like solar and wind power to make sure every Indian household has at least one light bulb by 2019—a daunting goal for a country where some 400 million of its residents still lack basic electricity.
