Talk about the procurement of crop wastes; the burning of rice crop residue in northern India will create an air pollution crisis.  This can be avoided by procuring all the crop waste at a remunerative price. The waste can be converted into briquettes, which can be substituted for coal in thermal power stations. 

Demand for EVs will not pick up till a critical mass of charging infrastructure is available, and the investment in charging stations would not generate returns —a classic chicken and-egg conundrum.

Decentralized solar procurement, decentralized gas-based economy etc.
