Power Grid Corporation of India (PGCIL) has prepared a report for transmission infrastructure development for the upcoming renewable energy projects.

PGCIL prepared this report, under an assignment from the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, for projects in the identified areas of eight renewable resource rich states namely Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and also Jammu & Kashmir.

This information was given by Minister for New & Renewable Energy, Farooq Abdullah in Lok Sabha recently.

The report estimates that during 12th Five Year Plan period upto 2017 around 42 gw (30 gw by wind, 10 gw by solar and 2 gw by small hydro) renewable energy capacity would be added.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy in collaboration with the Ministry of Power has initiated follow up on the findings of the report.

It has entered into a Joint Declaration of Intent with the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development of the Federal Republic of Germany on April 11, 2013 to foster increased use of renewable energy by integrating additional renewable energy generation capacity with the national grid, Abdullah said.

The minister further informed that the potential of main renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and small hydro is confined to few states and that too in certain areas.
