Delhi’s Draft Climate Action Plan Aims to Harness Clean Power Sources
This policy brings to set up 2,000 MW of solar power installations by 2025 and regulates the installation of solar panels on government buildings with huge rooftops.

These adversities could critically impact hydropower generation capacity in Delhi, which currently withdraws this energy from other states.
Initiatives like the Delhi Solar Policy, introduced in 2016, show the city’s commitment to harnessing cleaner power sources.
This policy brings to set up 2,000 MW of solar power installations by 2025 and regulates the installation of solar panels on government buildings with huge rooftops. To boost solar energy adoption in residential regions, incentives were given for three years.
The plan recommends enhancing the strength of new structures against harsh weather conditions and implementing measures such as underground distribution systems to protect against wind, temperature fluctuations, and flooding. Additionally, the plan advises integrating advanced cooling systems for substations and transformers.
The plan aligns with India’s National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC), introduced in 2008, and emphasizes the need for states to adapt their strategies to emerging climate action and policy landscapes.
By drawing insights from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Sixth Assessment Report (IPCC AR6), the plan gives projections that show alarming temperature increases by mid-century, calling for robust and immediate action to steer Delhi toward a more sustainable and climate-resilient future.
For solar photovoltaic systems, it says designs that improve airflow under mounting structures can minimise panel temperature and strengthen power output.
