Ashish Kamble | Amita Mane | R. Y. Daspute | Swapnil Bhandwale
Abstract: India has a great potential to tackle energy problems faced, by the use of renewable energy technologies and sources. Most of the countries are blessed with two or more renewable energy resources, India on the other hand has plenty of such resources. The current paper assesses the past growth & future expectation of renewable energy productions and also highlights ways implemented to achieve the dream of 175 GW by 2022 target of renewable energy capacity including wind and biomass. It is difficult not to be dazzled by Indias renewable energy ambition and an audacity of ambition to achieve such an amazing dream. In 2014 when India announced the 100 GW target for solar energy, India had 3 GW of solar energy and 33.8 GW of renewable energy capacity. Such ambitions have been central to changing the perception about Indias willingness to contribute to the global effort to reduce carbon pollution. The paper emphasizes to summarize the availability, current status, major achievements and future potentials of solar energy options in India. Specific policies revised by the government also highlight purpose of the paper.
