India eyeing a new monster 100GW solar-capacity goal

India’s energy minister R.K. Singh is considering issuing a tender for 100 gigawatts of solar energy.
The tender could be tied to solar panel-manufacturing buildout. In 2015, India set a goal to reach 100GW of solar capacity as part of its larger aim of 175GW of renewable energy in general by 2022. This latest 100GW tender would be for a 2030 or 2035 target.
The existing goal is ambitious, so a stretch goal further into the future is even more so.
For now, the country\’s current total solar capacity is just 24.4GW.
