  • India : Capacity for Renewable Energy in India Hits 42,850 Mw; Surpasses Capacity of Hydel Projects
    June 10, 2016
    India's quest for green energy has crossed a major milestone, with renewable plants, mainly wind and solar,
    surpassing the capacity of large hydroelectricity projects, which were once the country's biggest source of electricity and regarded as "temples of modern India". The total capacity of renewable energy projects expanded to 42,850 megawatts, overtaking hydropower that stood at 42,783 mw, out of the country's total capacity of about 3 lakh mw on April 30, as per the latest assessment of the Central Electricity Authority.
