India’s non-fossil fuel-based capacity has met the 40% target under its nationally determined contribution (NDC) at COP 21.

India committed to reaching 40% of its installed power capacity from non-fossil energy sources by 2030 as part of its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) at COP 21 as part of its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). ” This goal was met by the nation in November of 2021. On Thursday, the ministry of New and Renewable Energy issued a statement.

According to the government, non-fossil fuels will account for 66% of installed electricity capacity by 2030. In addition, India has already achieved a 28% decrease in emissions.

Today, the country’s installed Renewable Energy (RE) capacity is 150.05 GW, whereas nuclear energy-based installed electrical capacity is 6.78 GW. “This brings the total non-fossil-based installed energy capacity to 156.83 GW, which is 40.1% of the total installed electricity capacity of 390.8 GW,” the statement said.

India just stated at COP26 in Glasgow that it would reduce net carbon emissions to zero by 2070.

The government is committed to reaching 500 GW of installed electrical capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030, as announced by the Hon’ble Prime Minister at the recently ended CoP26,” added the statement.

According to the Central Electricity Authority, the country’s power demand by 2030 would be 817GW, with clean energy accounting for more than half of it, and solar energy accounting for 280GW.
