Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially inaugurated the construction of a megapark on Tuesday, which will have a potential of 30 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy. The Hybrid Renewable Energy Park in the Kutch district in Gujarat will be the largest renewable energy park in the world. On an area of 72,600 hectares, there will be a separate zone of a hybrid park for storing wind and solar energy and a separate zone for wind energy production.
Earlier this year, India’s Energy and Renewable Energy Minister RK Singh said that 60% of the country’s installed electricity will come from clean energy by 2030. India is expected to be the fastest growing energy demand market in the coming decades, with 510 GW of renewable capacity expected to be achieved by 2030, including 60 GW from hydropower.
