India solar and wind energy plan

India Solar and Wind Energy ( Solar Thermal Magazine ) – The Government has launched Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) to give a boost to utilization of solar energy for various applications. As on date, grid-interactive solar power generation capacity of around 1,850 MW has already been commissioned in the country.

Provision has been made in the National Tariff Policy wherein the State Electricity Regulators have to fix a percentage of energy purchase from solar power under the Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO).  As per amendment, the solar RPO has to begin with 0.25% of the energy procured in the State reaching to 3% by 2022. The Government is also implementing a plan for use of wind energy in the country, which is being utilized largely for grid-interactive power generation. Wind power capacity of 19,564 MW has already been set-up in a country.
