India’s Progress in the Renewable Energy Sector

India’s sun-drenched fields and windswept coasts are witnessing a silent revolution. Renewable energy capacity has crossed the 179.5 GW mark, making India the 4th largest player globally in both wind and solar power. This rapid green surge isn’t just powering homes and industries; it’s electrifying stock markets and driving India’s ambitious climate goals, according to as the REN21 Renewables 2022 Global Status Report.

The Indian government has set a target of 500 GW of non-fossil energy by 2030 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2070. 2023 saw a flurry of policy activity, laying the groundwork for faster growth. Structured annual auctions for 50 GW of renewable capacity, a clear roadmap for achieving Renewable Purchase Obligations (RPOs), and streamlined pricing through a Uniform Renewable Energy Tariff are just some of the initiatives propelling the sector forward, according to report.
