A senior official said on Saturday that the share of renewable energy in the country’s power mix has increased from 23% to 26% in the April-August period.
The share of green energy has increased at a time when sluggish demand was witnessed due to the power sector Kovid-19 epidemic.
Central Electricity Authority (CEA) President Prakash Mhaske said the share of renewable energy has increased from 23 per cent to 26 per cent from April to August 2020.
He also said that India will reach the target of reducing carbon emissions by 30–33% before the pledge year of 2030.
Ghanshyam Prasad, joint secretary in the Union Ministry of Power, said that although the country aims to have 40% of its installed power capacity renewable or nuclear by 2030, thermal power will have a substantial share in the power generation mix.
