India's transition to a low carbon economy
Renewable energy in India has grown very rapidly in recent years. Renewable energy capacity reached 84 GW by the end of 2019. India has the ambitious targets of having 175 GW of renewable power capacity by 2022 and taking this up to 450 GW thereafter. The fall in costs of solar and wind power globally have been so dramatic that renewable energy is now the cheapest source of electricity when it is generated.
