Indian Renewable Sector – A Glance.

INTRODUCTION

First of all, Energy is one of the most important building blocks in human development, and as such, acts as a key factor in determining the economic development of all the countries. In an effort to meet the demands of a developing nation, the energy sector has witnessed a rapid growth. Furthermore, non-renewable resources are significantly reducing by human use. Whereas, renewable resources
are produced by ongoing processes that can sustain indefinite human exploitation.

RENEWABLE ENERGY IN INDIA

The use of renewable resources of energy is rapidly increasing worldwide. Solar power, one of
the potential energy sources, is a fast developing industry in India. The country’s solar installed
capacity was 12.28 GW in the year 2016-17 as compared to 6.76 GW during the year 2015-16. In addition, India has expanded its solar generation capacity by 5.52 GW during last one year which has led to the downward trend in the cost and has increased usage. In conclusion, it clearly signifies that proper integration of policy interventions holds the key to achieve the sustainable development goals.
