Renewable Energy Annual and Cumulative Capacity (2012-2020)

India's cumulative installed renewable energy capacity has increased from 28067.26 MW in 2013-14 to 78316.43 MW in 2018-19. Interestingly the cumulative installed capacity of waste to energy projects decreased from 96.08 MW in 2012-13 to 90.58 in 2013-14. This indicates the decommissioning of few waste to energy power plants in the country during that period.

Cumulative installed capacity for remaining technologies kept on increasing between 2012-13 and 2018-19. If capacity addition is considered, the highest renewable energy capacity was added during 2017-18 (11778.15 MW) followed by 2016-17 (11320.19 MW), 2018-19 (9294.04 MW), 2015-16 (6964.89 MW), 2013-14 (6920.74 MW) and 2014-15 (3971.16 MW) respectively between 2013-14 and 2018-19. Interestingly, the capacity addition was dominated by wind technology in the initial periods whereas at the later stage capacity addition for solar technology-dominated capacity addition in other technologies.
