summary of the project.
Since the 1990s, the final consumption of electricity has increased by more than 450% in India. Today, around 75% of India’s electricity is generated by coal which explains an increase in carbon emissions by 335%, from then to 2018. More recently, wind and solar energy have started to play an important role in shifting India’s electricity generation towards a greener model – but coal remains the undisputable foundation of the country’s electric mix.
This bundle of Gold Standard certified solar power projects are based in the Indian states of Rajasthan, Karnataka, Gujarat and Maharashtra, traditionally reliant on fossil fuels.
These projects play a part in India’s shift towards a low carbon economy by generating electricity from a renewable sources and supplying it to the state grid.
