Rajasthan has ‘bright future as renewable energy leader in India’

Saur Energy:

As India looks to expand its renewable energy capacity, a new report from IEEFA finds that Rajasthan can play a key leadership role in India’s transition to a low-cost, low-emission, profitable electricity system.

The state’s installed renewable energy capacity reached 9.6 gigawatts (GW) at the end of fiscal year (FY) 2019/20. It also added more solar power capacity (1.7 GW) in FY 2019/20 than any other Indian state, ahead of Karnataka (1.4 GW), the state with the highest installed solar capacity, and Tamil Nadu (1.3 GW).

“Rajasthan has a bright future as a renewable energy leader in India,” said the report’s author Kashish Shah, Research Analyst at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA). “But its power distribution companies (Discoms) are among the worst performing in India.”
