Water availability in India

Of all the rain that falls on the land and mountains and forests, some evaporates back in to the atmosphere, some is percolates in the ground and some is used by the forests. The remaining that flows in to the rivers is less than 50% on the total precipitation. The total annual flow in the rivers is estimated as 1869 km3.

Shares of energy sources in total global primary energy supply in 2008

On a global basis, it is estimated that renewable energy accounted for 12.9% of the total 492 EJ of primary energy supply in 2008 (IEA, 2010a). The largest renewable energy contributor was biomass (10.2%), with the majority (roughly 60%) of the biomass fuel used in traditional cooking and heating applications in developing countries but with rapidly increasing use of modern biomass as well. Hydropower represented 2.3%, whereas other renewable energy sources accounted for 0.4%.
