The future looks bright for Avneet whose determinations don’t stop here. “My dream is to make a solar powered car that would cost lesser than Tata’s Nano car,” he said, according to a recent ANI report.
As part of its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC), India is commitment to sourcing 40% of its electricity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030, and young people like Avneet are doing their bit to help!
