India achieves 40 per cent installed capacity from non-fossil sources 

India has achieved the target of 40 per cent of installed electricity capacity from non-fossil energy sources in November 2021, way ahead than the 2030 deadline committed by the country at COP 21.

India had announced the target as part of its nationally determined contributions (NDCs) at the climate change conference in Paris in 2015. The installed renewable energy (RE) capacity stands at 150.05 GW while nuclear energy based installed electricity capacity stands at 6.78 GW. This brings the total non-fossil based installed energy capacity in the country to 156.83 GW which is 40.1 per cent of the total installed electricity capacity of 390.8 GW.
