Installed Capacity

India's installed capacity has increased from 160 GW as of 31st March 2010 to 356 GW as of 31st March 2019. The conventional based energy installed capacity has increased from 102 GW as of 31st March 2010 to 226 GW as of 31st March 2019. Among conventional sources, coal and lignite based energy generation installed capacity has increased the most (from 84 GW as on 31st March 2010 to 201 GW as on 31st March 2019).

Interestingly, the diesel-based generation capacity has decreased from 1.2 GW as of 31st March 2010 to 0.6 GW as of 31st March 2019. The nuclear-based capacity has increased from 4.5 GW as of 31st March 2010 to 6.8 GW as of 31st March 2019. However, the most significant growth has been observed in the renewable energy sector as the sector grew from 16 GW as of 31st March 2010 to 78 GW as of 31st March 2019.

Historic Value of Installed Capacity

Renewable energy installed capacity in India is concentrated across few major states. These states are Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan.

Moreover, around 93% to 95% of total renewable energy capacity have been installed in top 10 states over a period from end of FY 2013-14 to end of FY 2018-19. However, these installed capacities are commensurate with the renewable energy potential across the states with high installed capacities observed in high potential states. From 2013-14 to 2016-17, Tamil Nadu ranked first among Indian states in terms of renewable energy installed capacity. But since 2017-18, Karnataka has replaced Tamil Nadu to achieve rank 1 in terms of total renewable energy installed capacity.

If region wise installed capacity is considered, the Southern region has the highest installed capacity followed by the Western region, Northern region, Eastern region and North-Eastern region respectively between 2013-14 and 2018-19. In addition, the progress in the Eastern region states and the North-East region states is lagging behind that in other region states. Nevertheless, states like Bihar, West Bengal, Odisha and Arunachal Pradesh have shown good progress over the period from 2013-14 to 2018-19.
