Profiling the five largest solar power plants in India

India has placed high hopes on solar power delivering a large portion of its 450-gigawatt renewable energy target by 2030 as the nation aims to reduce its fossil-fuel reliance

India has ramped up its solar energy capacity in recent years and the nation is now home to some of the largest power plants.

The South Asian nation has placed high hopes on the technology delivering a large portion of its 450-gigawatt (GW) renewable energy target by 2030 as it aims to reduce its fossil-fuel reliance.

India currently stands third in Asia and fourth in the world in terms of solar power production across its plants, with solar accounting for about 38% of its total renewable energy capacity.

The country’s National Solar Mission was launched in 2010 – when just 10 (megawatts) MW of solar power was installed on the grid – with a target of 20GW set for 2020. But due to significant activity within the solar power sector over the following years, India raised its target to achieve 100GW of solar capacity by 2022.

Here, NS Energy profiles the five largest solar power plants in India.
