India’s renewable energy capacity to double by 2022: IEA

 

According to a report of International Energy Agency (IEA), India’s renewable energy capacity will more than double by 2022, which would be enough to surpass renewable expansion in the European Union for the first time. The country’s renewable energy installed capacity is 58.30 GW as per the recent government data. The government has an ambitious goal of increasing it to 175 GW by 2022 including 100 GW of solar and 60 GW of wind energy. The solar PV and wind together represent 90 percent of India’s capacity growth as auctions yielded some of the world’s lowest prices for both technologies.
