India is a world leader in renewable energy in the world. About 35% of its total energy consumption comes from renewable sources. In fact, the country is about to achieve renewable energy production of 175 GW by 2022.
The progress on this front can be attributed to the Prime Minister’s target of achieving 450GW of renewables by 2030. Even at the global level, the share of renewable energy has grown to over 33% in the past decade. While Germany aims to shift 65% of its energy demand to renewables by 2030, China has recently installed the largest solar and wind capacity plant in the world.
Even small countries like Costa Rica are producing 95% of its electricity from hydro, geothermal, solar and wind sources.
