What India should do to achieve 500 GW non-fossil fuel capacity by 2030

04 May 2022

The pace of solar capacity addition can be ramped up by tapping the potential of decentralised small solar power installations in rural India. Solar panels can be put up in villages on roof tops, over cattle sheds, grain stores, wastelands, and water bodies. The policy instrument of a feed in tariff to tap this potential would work. India could move to the global frontier in storage with domestic production and declining costs in this decade and achieve the 500 GW non-fossil fuel capacity target of 2030. This would also be the least costly path for meeting our growing electricity needs.
