India Ranks 4th on the list of World's Top 10 Countries in Wind Energy Capacity

According to BloombergNEF organization, almost half of the world’s electricity will be generated from renewable energy sources by 2050.

“More than three-quarters of the onshore wind and four-fifths of the solar PV capacity that is due to be commissioned in 2020 will produce power at lower prices than the cheapest new coal, oil or natural gas options”, the global database of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) says.

Last year, the costs for all commercial renewable energy technologies decreased. For instance, the global weighted-average cost of electricity from solar photovoltaics and onshore wind energy declined by 13%, and geothermal and offshore wind – by 1%.
With over 600 GW of global capacity in 2018, wind energy has become the world’s key renewable energy sources.
