India will require large swaths of land for the huge expansion of renewable energy capacity over the coming decades. The energy transition requires planning for proper siting of these plants and solutions like agrivoltaics, distributed energy systems, and offshore wind to reduce land-use conflicts.

Such projects also lead to canal water savings due to reduced evaporation. However, their high cost compared to ground-mount remains a concern.
