India's Gujarat to boost renewables capacity to 30GW by 2022

6.9GW will be allotted to wind power.

The State of Gujarat (Western India) aims at increasing its renewable power capacity from the current 9.7 GW to 30 GW by 2022. The existing renewable power capacity of Gujarat is divided between wind (6.9 GW) and solar (2.6 GW). In September 2019, the State Government of Gujarat decided to no longer give clearance to new thermal projects. Gujarat's thermal installed capacity reached 22.3 GW in July 2019 with coal-fired capacity representing 14.2 GW.
