In 2018, India Added 17.6GW Power, New Energy Accounting For More Than 70% Of The Total

- Jan 24, 2019 -

India added 17.6 gigawatts of total (net) electricity generation in 2018, according to the country's latest statistics, 74% of which is based on renewable energy technologies (mainly solar), a record high, making 2018 the greenest year yet for new capacity.diy solar charge controller

 Specifically, India will add 17.6 gw of new capacity in 2018, including 4.1 gw from fossil fuels (including coal, oil, etc.), about 435 mw from large hydropower, 13.1 gw from renewable energy technologies, including 8.9 gw from solar and 2.2 gw from wind.60 amp solar charge controller

As a result, solar accounts for 50 percent of the increase in total capacity, while wind accounts for 12 percent. Fossil fuels shrank to 24 percent, but that's up slightly from 21 percent in 2017.24v solar charge controller

The fossil fuel industry added just 335 megawatts of net capacity.MPPT 40a solar charge controller

In the second half of 2018, renewable energy accounted for as much as 93 percent of the total net increase, and 4.6 gigawatts of the 4.9 gigawatts of net increase came from renewable energy capacity. Solar accounts for 59%, wind 15% and fossil fuels 6%.12 volt solar charge controller

Last year's surge in renewable energy capacity reflected the share of low-carbon electricity generation. The share of renewable energy in India's overall electricity generation hit an all-time high of 9 percent between January and November 2018, pending final figures for December. Wind and overall renewable energy technologies accounted for a record share of total power generation in the third quarter of 2018, at 8.2 percent and 11.9 percent, respectively.
