All indicators pointing towards sharp economic recovery- Piyush Goyal
“We are encouraged by all the economic indicators as they come out, which point to a very clear and sharp economic recovery. The GDP has grown by a record 20.1 per cent in the first quarter,” he said at the India Energy Forum by CERAWeek here.
Goyal further said the government has taken several steps to encourage growth and investment in the renewable energy sector with 100 per cent FDI through the automatic route.
The minister added that India’s renewable energy programme is among the largest in the world and the country has 101 GW renewable energy capacity as on September 30, 2021.
“We are aiming towards our initial target of 175 GW by end of 2022,” Goyal said, adding India will achieve 40 per cent cumulative electricity capacity from non-fossil fuel-based energy resources by 2030.
