The level of sustainable power source in India’s energy blend has risen consistently to about 9 percent from the 2014-2015 levels. However, the current installed sustainable power source limit of India is nowhere near against the 282 GW conventional power capacity. This is on the grounds that regardless of the high installed renewable generation capacity, a lower plant load factor lessens the amount of energy produced by these plants.
Till now, 83.38 GW of sustainable power capacity plants have been installed as on October 31, 2019. This incorporates 31.69 GW from solar power, 37.09 GW from wind power, 9.95 GW bio-power and 4.65 GW hydro power. The level of sustainable energy supplied has ascended from 3.72 percent in 2014-2015 to over 8.9 percent in 2019-2020 (till October 2019). Inside sustainable power source, solar energy indicated the most elevated increment, up from 45,99.02 million units in 2014-2015 to 39,268.2 million units in 2018-2019. However, wind kept on major portion of India’s sustainable power source domain, supplying over 62,036.38 million units in 2018-2019, up from 33,768.3 million units in 2014-2015.
