Talking about the crucial need for power generation in India, a nation of 1.1 billion people just undergoing an Industrial Revolution, Raj outlines his country's energy policy:
Our energy policy is simple. If you have a way to make electricity, then we say, make as much as you can.Wonderful! I'm not sure I'd want to thoroughly endorse that, particularly in the largely state-run morass of Indian power generation, but what a refreshing contrast to New Zealand's antediluvian energy policy which is very soon going to kick us right in the nuts.
