Ministry, in consultation with National Institute of Wind Energy Chennai, has prepared a draft certification scheme incorporating various guidelines issued by MNRE and titled under "Indian Wind Turbine Certification Scheme (IWTCS)".

In yet another effort to boost clean energy generation, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) unveiled a National Wind-solar Hybrid Policy that which seeks to promote new projects as well as hybridisation of the existing ones.

This has reference to the guidelines for implementation of a scheme for setting-up of over 5,000 MW Grid-Connected Solar PV Power Projects with Viability Gap Gunding (VGF) under Batch-IV of Phase II, issued vide the Ministry's O.M. of even number dated 14-03.2016.

Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has commissioned a study on “Economic Rate of Return for various Renewable Energy Technologies”.

Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) is implementing Grid Connected Rooftop Solar (RTS) Power Programme.

The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) has prepared a concept note on Solar PV Manufacturing Scheme to build up manufacturing capacity of solar PV modules, cells, wafers/ ingots and polysilicon in India.

The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) has been supporting RD&D for Technology Development and Demonstration for commercialisation of New & Renewable Energy Systems/Devices.

India has set an ambitious target of reaching 175 GW of installed capacity from renewable energy sources including 100 GW from solar and 60 GW from wind by the year 2022. Various policy initiatives have been taken to achieve this target.

MNRE invites comments of stakeholders on “Draft Guidelines for Tariff Based Competitive Bidding Process for Procurement of Power from Grid Connected Solar PV Power Projects”.

Wind energy is the fastest growing renewable energy source in India. With an installed capacity of close to 28 GW, it constitutes about 61% of the country’s installed renewable power capacity. Commercial wind power projects in India are promoted through fiscal and promotional incentives.
