A total of 80.46 GW renewable energy capacity has been installed in the country as on 30 June 2019. As per India's submission to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change on Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), a cumulative electric power capacity of 40 percent from non-fossil, fuel-based energy resources is to be installed by 2030.

The solar power capacity addition was 5,525.98 MW in 2016-17, 9,362.63 MW in 2017-18 and 6,529.20 MW in 2018-19. A total of 42 solar power parks with an aggregate capacity of around 23.40 GW have been approved by the government so far to facilitate achievement of 100 GW target by March 2022.

Out of the approved capacity of 23.40 GW, power purchase agreements (PPAs) have been signed for around 9.20 GW and out of this, around 6.40 GW capacity has been commissioned in various solar parks as on 30 June 2019.
