Capacity additions in solar and wind energy beat the targets comprehensively in the grid-connected segment. Against a target to add 2.4 GW of wind energy capacity, a total of 3.3 GW capacity was added. One of the reasons for this high quantity of capacity addition is the rush among project developers to commission projects before critical financial incentives expire, or are reduced, starting 1 April 2017. Wind energy remains the most attractive renewable energy technology in terms of capacity addition. At the end of the last financial year, grid-connected wind energy capacity in India stood at 26.7 GW, representing a share of 62.5% of the total grid-connected renewable energy capacity installed in the country.
