Renewable energy: Evolving a strategic interest for states
Increasing the share of Renewable Energy (RE) is considered an important energy policy goal globally. It has rightly received significant public policy attention in India, including a separate ministry and national missions aspiring to achieve ambitious RE targets. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has recently revised the targets five-fold for solar from 22GW to 100 GW by 2022. It is also considering a National Wind mission.
