In India Solar and Wind Dominate Energy Additons

In India Solar and Wind Dominate Energy Additons

London, UK-based global energy think tank Ember launched India state RES target and progress tracker, early last year.
The data tool tracks the monthly progress of Indian states and union territories against their 2022 renewable energy targets, using archive records of state-wide installed renewable energy capacity data from India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.

Solar and wind drove the majority (92%) of India’s electricity capacity additions in 2022. Coal accounted for only 5%.

India’s solar and wind additions increased the country’s renewable generation capacity by 15.7 GW, 1.7% above additions in 2021. The additional capacity is comparable to the size of the UK’s entire solar capacity as of 2021. Coal capacity additions amounted to less than 1 GW, 78% less than the addition in 2021. 

Ember’s Asia data analyst, Uni Lee, said, “India, especially the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat, have demonstrated to the world that rapid deployment of solar and wind is not only possible, but also already happening. As the country presides over the G20 presidency this year, India is well-positioned to take climate leadership as a prime example on the possibilities of enabling clean power generation by unleashing solar and wind power. “
