India's Renewable ( RE ) Energy Generation

India’s Renewable Energy Generation Report : 2021

  • The India has achieved renewable energy capacity of 92.54 GW ( excluding large hydro power ) at the end of January, 2021. 
  • The installed RE capacity of India has increased by two and half times from April 2014 to January 2021 in the span of seven year period. 
  • The solar capacity has increased 15 times during the same duration . 
  • The India stands at 4th in RE power capacity, 4th in wind power and 5th in solar power capacity.
