As part of Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC)s as per the Paris Accord on Climate Change, India has undertaken to install at least forty percent of its total electricity generation capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030.
As on 29th February 2020, a cumulative renewable energy capacity of 132.15 GW had been installed in the country, with an additional capacity of 46.69 GW under various stages of implementation and 34.07 GW under various stages of bidding.
On the same date, the country had cumulative installed capacity of 138.93 GW from non-fossil fuels sources.
The cumulative renewable energy capacity and cumulative capacity from non-fossil fuel sources constituted 35.80% and 37.63% of total electricity generation capacity of 369.12 GW installed in the country as on 29th February, 2020, respectively.
Based on these figures we can safely assume that India is on course to achieving the nationally determined contribution (NDC) target of 40% as per Paris Accord.
