India is expected see renewable energy capacity addition of 30,000 MW, with significant contribution from wind power, over the next five years.

"At the end of 12th Five Year Plan (2012-17), the country is expected to have total renewable energy generation capacity of 55,000 MW," Joint Secretary at the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy Tarun Kapoor said today.

India has renewables generation capacity of about 25,000 MW, he said at a conference on the power sector.

Of the projected 30,000 MW capacity addition, around 15,000 MW would be from wind power.

According to him, there are also certain issues such as financial health of power distribution companies (discoms) and availability of transmission lines for renewable energy projects.

Amid severe power shortage in the country there is increased focus on generating electricity from renewable sources like wind, solar and hydro to bring down the demand supply gap.

Presently, India has an installed power generation capacity of little over 2 lakh MW.

The conference was organised by International Trade and Exhibitions India Ltd and ITE Group Plc.
