India adds 1004 MW solar capacity in 2013 and Wind capacity crosses the 20 GW mark – MNRE

According to the data released by the MNRE today, India’s cumulative grid-connected solar installed capacity(PV+CSP) stood at 2,180 MW as of 31 December 2013. This translates to an addition of 1,004 MW in the calender year 2013. Wind installations crossed the 20 GW mark in November 2013, and stood at 20,150 MW at the end of 2013. The total renewable installed capacity almost touched the 30 GW mark.  The total power generating capacity(all sources of energy) stood at 233, 930 MW and renewables constituted about 12.8% of the total installed capacity(Source: CEA).
