As on 31.10.2019, the all India generation installed capacity is 3,64,960 MW which includes 83,379.50 MW from Renewable Energy Sources (RES). Government of India has planned an ambitious capacity addition target of 1,75,000 MW from Renewable Energy Sources (RES) by the year 2022.
The NITI Aayog has released Three Year Action Agenda which is an integral part of the 15-year Vision Document of India being drafted by the NITI Aayog.
The energy sector is one of the key drivers of economic growth and development. Access to reliable sources of energy is a crucial issue. Chapter 13 of "India - 3 Year Action Agenda 2017-20" discusses this subject including actions necessary for increasing energy consumption and increasing energy efficiency and production. It pays particular attention to how we may improve the efficiency of distribution of coal, electricity, oil & gas, and harness renewable energy.
NITI Aayog is formulating National Energy Policy (NEP). The NEP builds on the achievements of the earlier Integrated Energy Policy (IEP), and sets the new agenda consistent with the redefined role of emerging developments in the energy world such as interventions required in key sectors like Petroleum & Natural Gas, Coal, Power, Renewable Energy and Nuclear power.
