The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy recently announced that India has reached its non – fossil fuel target much ahead of 2030.
What is the milestone achieved?
At the COP21, India had pledged to install 40% of overall electric energy from non – renewable sources. India aimed to achieve this target by 2030. But it has now achieved this well ahead in November 2021.
What is the achieved target?
The total installed electric capacity of India is 392.01 GW. Of this, the total non – fossil- fuel based energy is 157.32 GW. This is 40.1% of 392.01 GW to be precise.
How did India achieve the target so early?
The achieved target is a part of Nationally Determined Contributions. The NDCs were pledged in 2015 Paris Agreement. India was keen in implementing the NDC very sincerely since signing the agreement. India is the only G-20 country that has been meeting its climate goals. This helped India achieve the target early. Under NDC, India pledged to increase its total electricity generation from fossil fuel to 40% of the total electricity generation in the country. India had also pledged to reduce the emissions by 33% as compared to 2005 levels. The NDCs are to be achieved by 2030.
