The December 2019 quarter saw India's cumulative clean energy capacity cross 85,000 MW, of which more than 50,000 MW of new capacity addition was achieved in the past five years. As on December 31, 2019, the total grid-connected installed renewable power capacity in India stood at 85,908 MW, aided by support of several policy measures in recent years, according to latest Ministry of New and Renewable (MNRE) energy data.
Five years ago, India's cumulative grid-interactive clean energy installed capacity was about 33,792 MW. Though the wind segment is still leading now with a total installed capacity of 37,505 MW as of December 31, 2019, solar is fast growing and is likely to overtake the wind sector in near term.
