India Attracts $6.1 billion FDI in Renewables

India’s Federal Minister for New & Renewable Energy and Power has provided an update on foreign direct investment (FDI) in India’s renewable energy sector. He stated that under India’s FDI policy, the renewable energy sector allows 100% FDI under the automatic route.

The government has taken several steps to attract FDI in renewable energy, including: setting up a Project Development Cell, declaring renewable purchase obligation trajectories until 2030, establishing Ultra Mega Renewable Energy Parks, building transmission infrastructure under the Green Energy Corridor project, and launching projects such as PM-KUSUM– an initiative to support farmers to install renewable energy based power plants, solar pumps and solarization of agriculture pumps. It aims to increase the share of non-fossil-fuel sources as also phase 2 of the solar rooftop program.
