Investing in Sustainable Energy: The case for solar technologies in Sri Lanka

This commentary explains why Sri Lanka should abandon coal and invest instead in a national solar energy program modelled on the experience of India.

It outlines reasons why middle-income countries need to invest in future technologies rather than assets like coal that offer little in terms of green growth, skills building and sustainable development. The commentary also highlights the policy framework that led to the success of the India Solar Mission 2022.
