INDIA. New Delhi: The Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Shri Bhupender Yadav held a meeting with H.E. Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, UAE Climate Envoy, and Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology virtually today and discussed issues relating to COP 26, renewable energy, energy efficiency, and other related matters.

Stating that renewable energy and energy efficiency are among the key pillars of Indian climate change strategies, Shri Yadav mentioned that under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, India has worked to make sure that renewable energy, particularly solar, becomes cheaper than energy from fossil fuels.

The Minister further mentioned that India has already installed about 151GW of non-fossil fuel installed capacity with 39 percent of the total capacity installed and going ahead, India has declared an aspirational target of installing 450 GW of renewable energy by 2030.

India has already achieved the distinction of being the world leader in Energy Transition. India’s NDC is to increase the share of non-fossil fuels to 40% of the total electricity generation capacity by 2030 but at the current rate, we might be able to achieve almost 50 percent from non-fossil fuel by 2030.
