Renewable energy prospects for India

India is one of the most dynamic and vibrant markets in the world for renewable energy. This key emerging market, home to 16% of the global population in 2017, is poised for some of the fastest energy demand growth over the coming decades. Development of renewables is happening on many fronts, from on-the-ground innovation and technological breakthroughs to policy measures at all levels. Yet, as this working paper from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) shows, current plans and policies remain insufficient to meet sustainability targets, as well as to address expanding energy demand and socio-economic needs.
