India sees narrowing gap between clean energy, coal power

India has achieved an unexpected benefit on the energy front during this Covid-19 pandemic phase. The gap between the share of renewables and coal-fired power in India’s electricity generation sector has narrowed more than ever before. The share of renewables increased from 17 % just before the pandemic to almost 24 % and coal-fired power declined from 76 % to 66 %,” said energy analysts of International Energy Agency (IEA) in their note on India’s energy sector. IEA is of the view that the clean energy transition is good, both for the economy and the environment of India, the world’s third-largest energy consumer.
