    India Misses Renewable Energy Target Due To Low Solar Rooftop: Parliamentary Panel

    March 22, 2023 - BW Online Bureau


      As of December 31, 2022, the government has installed 120.90 GW of renewable energy capacity

      The failure to meet India's goal of 175 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022 is largely due to the poor installation of solar roof-top and wind energy projects, according to the parliamentary panel.

      India established a lofty goal to install 175 GW of renewable energy capacity by the year 2022, with 100 GW coming from solar, 60 GW from wind, 10 GW from biopower, and 5 GW coming from small hydropower, it said.

      However, as of 31 December 2022, the government has installed 120.90 GW of renewable energy capacity, or nearly 69 per cent of the overall goal, according to a report from the standing committee on energy.

      It also said that this is in fact a fantastic accomplishment, especially in light of the fact that installed capacity for renewable energy has expanded by more than 236 per cent since 2014.

      The committee noted that any shortfall in target achievement should also be noted. "However, it should be noted that any shortfall is due to the low installation of solar rooftops and wind energy projects," the committee said.

      The ministry of new and renewable energy must quicken its pace for on-time achievement of targets, it was urged, in light of India's pledge to raise our non-fossil fuel-based energy capacity to 500 GW by the year 2030.
