What a proud moment. India has achieved the target of generating 40% power from non-fossil fuel sources.

India has accomplished its goal of producing 40 per cent of its installed electricity from non-fossil energy sources, an official statement said on Thursday.

"At COP 21, as part of its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), India had committed to achieve 40 per cent of its installed electricity capacity from non-fossil energy sources by 2030. The country has achieved this target in November 2021 itself," the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy said.

As per the statement, the country's installed renewable energy capacity stands at 150.05 GW, while its nuclear energy-based installed electricity capacity is 6.78 GW.

This brings the total non-fossil fuels based installed energy capacity to 156.83 GW, which is 40.1 per cent of the total installed electricity capacity of 390.8 GW.

Last month, the Prime Minister made an announcement at COP26 climate change conference about achieving 500 GW of installed electricity capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030.
