India on track to beat its Paris targets years ahead of schedule, according to government report | ThinkProgress

In ten years, India could get almost sixty percent of its electricity from non-fossil fuel sources, according to a government forecast published this week.

According to a draft of the country’s 10-year energy blueprint, the Indian government expects that 57 percent of the country total electricity capacity will come from non-fossil fuel sources by 2027?—?a marked increase over the country’s Paris goals, which say that the country will reach 40 percent non-fossil fuel electricity by 2030. The draft also noted that no new coal-fired power plants would be needed to meet India’s electricity demands through 2027.
