Abstract: 

The Government in November 2009 approved the Jawaharal Nehru National Solar Mission, which creates policy conditions for quick renewable energy diffusion across the country. 20,000 MW of Solar energy is to be deployed by 2022 through leveraging domestic and foreign investments, engaging in research and development, manufacturing and development to make this sector competitive internationally. The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) estimates conservatively that the wind energy capacity in India could be 24 GW by 2020 and 30.5 GW by 2030.
