Tamil Nadu Among World’s Top 10 Markets With High Renewable Energy

India Climate Dialogue:

Even as India makes rapid strides in transitioning to renewable energy, the southern state of Tamil Nadu has outshone other provinces by being placed among the top 10 markets in the world in terms of renewable energy usage.

According to a new study by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), an international research agency, Tamil Nadu is ninth among global energy markets — countries, regions and states — that have achieved high use of renewable energy. Unsurprisingly, the list is topped by Denmark, with wind and solar comprising half its total power installations. South Australia comes a close second. Tamil Nadu is the only Asian market to make it to the top 10.

Tamil Nadu can double its wind energy capacity and increase its solar capacity six-fold by 2027, the IEEFA said in a report titled Electricity Transformation in India: A Case Study of Tamil Nadu, that was released a week earlier than the global survey.
