India has 175 GW of Renewable Energy in the Store

Science Innovations

A study by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) confirms that India will have a capacity of 175 gigawatts (GW) from renewable energy, which could be fed into its grid with full technical and economic viability by 2022. This is sufficient to replace 175 nuclear power plants in the country!

 

“The challenge is harnessing the existing physical flexibility of the power system through appropriate market designs, operational rules, incentive mechanisms, and other regulatory and policy changes,” said Sushil Kumar Soonee, coauthor of the report. “Robust planning will be critical to achieving the renewable energy goals set by the Indian government.”
