India Targets 18 GW of Renewable Energy Addition By 2017

Release Date: 27-Sep-2012

Renewable energy is deemed as the future of energy and India is working in that direction with its various policies. The government has planned a number of projects to be launched in the next few years that will enhance India’s renewable energy status. The research and development phase has already passed and the execution of projects is underway. With the many policies and incentive packages launched by the government to attract investment in the sector, renewable energy in India is bound to grow at an unprecedented pace. The basic infrastructure has been set up that will facilitate the future of renewable energy in the country.

India is one of the few countries to have set up an independent ministry to overlook the growth of renewable energy. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is the authority that launches the various schemes and projects to enunciate the renewable energy growth and to see that the schemes are properly utilized for the benefit of the nation. MNRE has proposed many schemes that will determine the future of renewable energy in India. These projects will establish a proper growth strategy in the future for the exploitation of the huge potential of renewable sources of energy in the country. There is a large amount of renewable energy still to be developed which will take help from the incentive schemes initiated by the ministry.

The Indian Government formulated the New and Renewable Energy Strategic Plan for 2011-2017. This plan document details the mission, objectives, goals, implementation, and evaluation plan for India's renewable energy sector. It describes the complete strategy to be followed for on-grid and off-grid RE power installation solutions that are achievable, realistic and time bound. It also outlines the financial incentives required for implementing an effective policy emphasizing off-grid biomass and solar technology in rural settings.
