India’s PV capacity additions fell 38% year on year in the first eight months of fiscal 2020-21, as pandemic-driven disruptions constrained new project development.

Solar power accounted for 5.2 GW of the new capacity additions, or 75% of the total.

Coal-based power, which is the nation’s dominant electricity source and accounts for 55% of the total power generation capacity, added just 1.9 GW to generation capacity in the eight months to November 2020.
