Rajasthan is home to most of the conventional and non-conventional sources of energy generation.
The Union government is preparing a ‘rent a roof’ policy for supporting its target of generating 40 gigawatts (GW) of power through solar rooftop projects by 2022.
Coal-based power generation capacity in India, which currently stands at 229.40 GW, is expected to reach 330-441 GW by 2040.
In 2018-19, the total imports in the conventional power sector were around Rs 75,000 crore and $2.9 billion in the renewable energy segment.
All this offers tremendous opportunity for stimulating domestic manufacturing and import substitution in the energy sector, said N.K. Jain, Chairman, FICCI Rajasthan Sub-Committee on MSMEs, at a webinar attended by around 200 participants.
