India may miss 2022 solar target of 100GW by 27%

A new report by JMK Research and the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) says India is likely to miss its ‘100GW by 2022’ solar target by about 27GW, mainly due to the underwhelming growth of rooftop solar. While utility-scale solar is on track to achieve nearly 97% of the 60GW installed capacity targeted by 2022, rooftop solar will be 25GW short of the 40GW mark.
