Which Indian states are winning the clean energy race?

The states were measured according to their overall preparedness and commitment. 

Karnataka and Gujarat emerged as the Indian states leading the clean energy transition, a report found. 

In a report, the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) and Ember measured the 16 states that account for 90% of India’s annual power requirement according to four dimensions. 

The dimensions include the state’s preparedness to shift away from fossil fuel, its ability to incentivise greener market participation, reliability, and policy.

“India’s revised Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) targets have put the country on the right path for transitioning its electricity sector. To achieve those targets, the centre now needs the cooperation of the states to move faster in their clean electricity transitions,” co-author Vibhuti Garg, Director, South Asia, IEEFA, said.

“This means states redoubling their efforts to walk the electricity transition pathway, and both central and state governments tracking progress and taking corrective measures as required.”

In particular, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal need to put more effort in their performances.
