Renewable Energy State wise capacity addition and achievement

Karnataka has the highest installed capacity (13844.99 MW) among Indian states as on 31st March 2019. However, as on 31st March 2017, Tamil Nadu had the highest installed capacity (10625 MW) among Indian states. Later since 2017-18, Karnataka has overtaken Tamil Nadu to top the table. Despite a very high level of achievement by top 5 states, the concentration of installed capacity is very high among top states. In other words, as on 31st March 2017, each of the 50% of the states had installed capacity of 177 MW or less. This number slightly increased as on 31st March 2018 to 187 MW and as on March 31st 2019 to 194 MW.

Karnataka had added maximum capacity of 4980.88 MW during 2017-18 followed by Telangana (2113.64 MW), Maharashtra (931.28 MW), Gujarat (623.43 MW) and Andhra Pradesh (561.46 MW) respectively. However, during 2018-19, Tamil Nadu added the maximum capacity of 1505.72 MW followed by Karnataka (1406.14 MW), Gujarat (1356.48 MW), Andhra Pradesh (1112.70 MW) and Rajasthan (898.02 MW) respectively. Overall capacity addition has decreased in 2018-19 as compared to 2017-18. This is mainly attributable to a drastic reduction in capacity addition in the Southern region (from 8237.21 MW in 2017-18 to 4391.05 MW in 2018-19).

Capacity addition has increased in the remaining four regions in the country. Most significant increase has been observed in North East region where capacity addition has increased from 1.43 MW in 2017-18 to 55.53 MW in 2018-19. Similarly, in the Eastern region capacity addition has increased from 47.66 MW during 2017-18 to 404.32 MW during 2018-19.
