Maha, UP, AP, and MP are significantly behind in terms of installing clean energy

Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh account for 61% of the countrys current deficit . Gujarat is the next state to meet the 2022 clean energy target .

Nagpur: Although the country's transition to renewable energy is showing some promising signs, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh are the four states that account for the bulk of the country's failure in the clean energy target, according to the new survey by global energy think tank Ember, which estimates that solar installations increased by 22% in the first eight months of the year as compared to the same period last year.This year, 89% of new renewable energy installations were installed.Wind power plants, on the other hand, barely increased by 7% in comparison to last year, now account for only 10% of all new renewable energy installations, according to the report.Gujarat is the next state to meet its 2022 clean energy target, with four states including Telangana, Rajasthan, and Karnataka fulfilling its commitments.

Analysts predicted that if these states continue to see such low installation rates, it would take them decades to reach even their December 2022 target of 20 years for Maharashtra, 80 years for Uttar Pradesh, 44 years for Andhra Pradesh, and 55 years for Madhya Pradesh, they further revealed that Maharashtra has the largest deficit of 11.1 gigawatt (GW) on its December 2022 target, despite having a 10.9 GW installed renewable energy capacity.According to the report, India has only installed 3% (0.3 GW) of the country's total new energy sources this year so far.India's reform seems to be being fueled by Rajasthan and Gujarat.Despite the fact that India could not reach the 175GW target by the end of 2022, the study revealed that the country's 2030 goals of 450GW renewables and 500GW non-fossil capacity are well within reach.

Indias renewable energy future is exciting, but it needs more national and local authority involvement to make it happen, according to data.Global renewable energy activities decreased sharply from April 2022, in part due to an increase in the basic customs duty.India's solar rush earlier this year demonstrated how quickly change could occur, says Embers senior electricity policy analyst Aditya Lolla.In March this year, a new renewable energy capacity increase of 3.5GW has been recorded.
