This apart, more than 20 GW RE projects are under the tendering phase from various nodal agencies, providing visibility for capacity addition over the medium-term.
  • Commenting further, Mr. Girishkumar Kadam, Senior Vice President & Co-Group Head - Corporate Ratings, ICRA Limited, said, “The RE sector is expected to witness investments of Rs. 3.5 trillion over the next four years, increasing the share of RE capacity to 34% of the overall installed capacity by March 2025 from 25% as of March 2021 led by the solar power segment.
