Creating a sustainable world
India is ranked as the second most attractive renewable energy market in the world.
India has setup an ambitious target of 175 GW of renewable power by 2022 to include:
- 100 GW of Solar power
- 60 GW from wind power
- 10 GW from biomass power
- 5 GW from small hydro power
This is the world's largest expansion plan in renewable energy.
In 2016-17, India added a record 11 GW of combined wind and solar capacity.
Up to 100% FDI is allowed under the automatic route for renewable energy generation and distribution projects subject to provisions of The Electricity Act, 2003
- 4th largest installed capacity of wind power in the world
- 3rd largest installed capacity of concentrated solar power (CSP) in the world
- World's largest 648 MW solar power plant in Tamil Nadu, commissed within a record 8 months
Renewable energy sources have a combined installed capacity of 60.1 GW pegged at around 18.2% of the country's total energy capacity.
Wind power accounted for the highest at 54.4% (around 32.7 GW). This is followed by solar with a share of 24.6% (14.7 GW). Remaining market was captured by Biomass at 13.8% (8.3 GW) and small hydro projects catering to 7.3% (4.4 GW).
- Renewable energy share in total installed capacity
- Increase in solar power capacity addition (2014-16)
- Wind energy share in renewable installed capacity
- % reduction in solar power tariff using plug & play model
