RENEWABLE ENERGY ENERGETICA INDIA MNRE’s 2015 Year-End Review: Putting India on Global Renewable Energy Map The Indian Renewable Energy Sector witnessed major makeover with 1,00,000 MW Solar Target by 2022, Draft of National Renewable Energy Policy, State-wise Net-Metering Policy, International Solar Alliance, Introduction of National Wind Energy Policy, and Implementation of Renewable Energy Laws Many may say that the year 2015 has been phenomenal for India’s renewable energy sector. The country is now operating one of the most renewable capacity expansion programmes in the world, with action-oriented plans and vision. The Government of India in its compliance to the United Nations Frame Work Convention on Climate Change on Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) has stated that India will accomplish 40% cumulative Electric power capacity from non-fossil fuel based energy resources by 2030 with the aid of transfer of technology and low cost International Finance including from Green Climate Fund. We look at the country’s various initiatives and success for the year 2015. Major updates from MNRE in the year 2015 Up-scaling Of Renewable Energy targets The Government has up-scaled the objective of renewable energy capacity to 175 GW by the year 2022 which includes 100 GW from solar, 60 GW from wind, 10 GW from bio-power and 5 GW from small hydro-power. Stepping up capacity target under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) by five times now India is aiming to generate reaching 1,00,000 MW solar power by 2022. The aim will predominantly comprise of 40 GW Rooftop and 60 GW through large and medium scale grid connected solar power projects. With this motivated target, India will become one of the largest Green Energy producers in the world, surpassing quite a few developed countries. The overall investment in setting up 100 GW will be around Rs. 6,00,000 crore. Increased Green Power Capacity A total of 2,311.88 MW of grid-connected power generation capacity from renewable energy sources like solar and wind has been added so far in the country. The government has set a target of 4,460 MW of power generation capacity addition this fiscal from renewable energy sources, including solar, wind and small-hydro. • During the first seven months of 2015, 827.22 MW of solar power generation capacity was added, taking the cumulative electricity generation capacity from the source to 4,579.24 MW. • The Centre is aiming to add 1,400 MW solar power generation capacities during this fiscal. • Likewise, 1,234.11 MW wind power generation capacity was added during the period, taking cumulative electricity generation capacity from this renewable source to 24,677.72 MW. The aim will predominantly comprise of 40 GW Rooftop and 60 GW through large and medium scale grid connected solar power projects. With this motivated target, India will become one of the largest Green Energy producers in the world, surpassing quite a few developed countries 62 energética INDIA · JAN | FEB16
