India will get to a cumulative renewable energy capacity of 120-125 GW by December 2022. This will certainly include 50% from solar, 38% wind and also the equilibrium from various other resources-- according to ICRA analysts.

The analysts expect utility-scale solar ability to attain the 60 GW target established by the federal government. Roof solar and also wind power sections, on the other hand, will certainly see a shortfall.

Sabyasachi Majumdar, Group Head & Senior Vice President-Corporate ratings, ICRA, said, "While [the 120-125 GW price quote] is less than the capability target of 175 GW set by the Government of India (GoI), the incremental capacity addition is approximated to be healthy at 33-38 GW with financial investment outlay of more than Rs 2 lakh crore over the following two-and-a-half years."

ICRA expects this to be supported by a huge pipeline of jobs granted by main nodal firms and also state distribution utilities (discoms) and most likely improvement in execution timelines.


ICRA anticipates RE capacity enhancement to stay suppressed at regarding 8 GW in FY2021, given the ongoing execution challenges amidst Covid-19, as a result of disruption of supply chain in addition to work schedule problems."

"7.5-8 GW RE estimate for FY 2021 will certainly comprise 5-5.5 GW solar (mainly utility-scale) and regarding 2 GW of wind energy," according to Girishkumar Kadam, Sector Head & Vice President-- Corporate Ratings, ICRA.

Nonetheless, ICRA anticipates the total medium- to long-lasting financial investment outlook for the renewable energy market to continue to be strong supported by extremely competitive tariffs, policy support as well as brand-new schemes such as peak supply, round-the clock supply and also RE plus thermal mixing.
