India to become a net exporter of solar modules by 2026
The Indian industry will produce 100 gigawatts (GW) of solar modules a year, which will help the country become a net exporter. This was stated by Bhupinder Bhalla, Secretary, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.
The official told The Hindu newspaper that this would contribute significantly to the national target of installing 500 GW of energy capacity from non-fossil sources by 2030.
Last year, India got an additional 122 GW from renewable energy sources, including wind, solar (62 GW), biomass and small hydro, as reported by Prensa Latina, a partner of TV BRICS.
