India is on track to install 1.1 GW of grid-connected solar power by 2013 and is on target to reach its 20 GW goal by 2022, according to the country's renewable energy secretary, Deepak Gupta.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Indian government has awarded 184 MW of projects that are projected to be completed by 2011. In addition, bids have been opened for 620 MW of generating capacity, and invitations to bid on an additional 300 MW of capacity will open in the next month. Approximately 10% of India's installed generation capacity is currently sourced from renewable energy.
