Although the government of India was, at first, reluctant, they have recently pledged to increase their renewable capacity by staggering amounts. By 2022, India’s goal is to have the same photovoltaic capacity as the United States.
“India’s ambition would require $160 billion, according to Arunabha Ghosh, chief executive officer at the New Delhi-based Council on Energy, Environment & Water. It would spread solar panels across an area the equivalent of three times the size of India’s most populous city, Mumbai, and require the government to cut back on thickets of regulation holding up projects” (renewableenergyworld.com).
All of this progress will require support, to which the United States has agreed to provide. Although, there has not been a specific number given to put behind the grant to India, plans will be set into motion assuming the Indian real estate permits so.
