According to a statement, India has added a renewable energy capacity of 13.5 GW in FY 2021-22, which amounts to an increase of 12% in comparison with FY 2020-21.

The country added utility-scale solar capacity of 10.21 GW, wind power capacity of 1.11 GW, and rooftop solar capacity of 2.22 GW in the year FY 2021-22, as the statement by BRIDGE TO INDIA consultancy.

In the span of 12 months, the states to add the highest capacity are Rajasthan- 5,806 MW capacity and Gujarat 2,469 MW capacity which accounts for almost 61% of total renewable energy capacity addition.

Total renewable sector capacity, which excludes small hydro as well as biomass, has now come to 96,223 MW. The share of total renewable power in the generation which excludes large-hydro in FY 2022 is also now at a high of 12.82%, which was 10% in FY 2021.

BRIDGE TO INDIA Managing Director Vinay Rustagi said that the renewable sector has showcased remarkable resilience while facing multiple challenges. However, it is important to understand that the record high numbers in FY 2022 are mainly due to the COVID spillover effect from last year.
