Monthly installed capacity

 

The monthly installed capacity of renewable energy technologies has been increasing gradually. Similar trend is observed for conventional source based technologies. But the percentage share of renewable energy in total monthly installed capacity is increasing over years whereas that for conventional technologies has been decreasing gradually. Within renewable energy sector solar installed capacity has been increasing rapidly on monthly basis whereas the rate of increase in installed capacity is slow for other renewable energy technologies. Although the installed capacity for conventional source based technologies has been increasing gradually, there percentage share in total installed capacity is decreasing gradually meaning a proportionately less increase in the installed capacity of conventional source based energy as compared total capacity increase.
