Yearwise Renewable Energy Installed Capacity

 

India has witnessed rapid year wise growth in renewable energy installed capacity between 2012-13 and 2018-19. Compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of renewable installed capacity during the same period has been 18.80% which prompted a whopping 2.8 times increase in renewable installed capacity.

Solar technology has witnessed the highest CAGR (60.46%) during the period followed by biomass (18.12%), wind (11.00%), waste to energy (6.26%) and small hydro (3.99%) respectively. The solar energy installed capacity has increased the maximum. For solar energy, installed capacity in the end of 2018-19 was 20 times than that in the end of 2012-13. The share of solar technology in total installed capacity has increased from 6.01% in 2012-13 to 36.47% in 2018-19. For all other technologies, share in total renewable installed capacity has decreased between 2012-13 and 2018-19. Share of wind has decreased from 67.88% to 45.14%, share of biomass has decreased from 12.83% to 12.39%, share of SHP has decreased from 12.94% to 5.82% and the share of waste to energy has decreased from 0.34% to 0.18% between the same time interval.
