India has huge potential to tap renewable energy: VK Jain

India has a huge potential to tap renewable energy, said VK Jain, Director & National Project Coordinator in the Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). He added that there were plans to add another 30,000 mw of renewable power during the 12th Five-Year Plan. He said this at a workshop on 'Promoting biomass power technologies', in Vadodara on April 3.

India's current installed capacity of renewable power is over 27,000 mw which is about 12 per cent of the total installed power generation capacity in the country. He said that 150 million tonne of surplus crop residues annually in the country have potential to generate more than 16,000 mw of power while 5,000 mw of power can be generated in sugar mills through bagasse cogeneration.

Gujarat is the only state producing 16 per cent of power through renewable energy sources, said Gujarat Energy Development Agency Director D R Joshi.
