India plans to expand the share of renewable energy at major hubs to 60%.

Renewable energy

According to Union Minister for Ports, Shipping and Waterways, Sarbananda Sonwal, the government aims to expand India’s renewable energy share in important ports to 60% by using solar and wind energy.
Highlights
Renewable energy now contributes to less than 10% of power demand at the ports. By 2030, the government wants to electrify 50% of port equipment. According to the proposal, by 2030, all ports will provide shore electricity to visiting ships in three phases. By 2030, ports hope to reduce carbon emissions per tonne by 30%.
Demands for energy efficiency
India will comply with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) energy efficiency and carbon intensity regulations for ships across all of its coastal and international vessels to assist the IMO in meeting its greenhouse gas reduction targets. India now provides shore power to vessels requiring less than 150 kW of power.
Contributions Determined at the National Level (NDC)
Under the Paris Agreement, India’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) for 2021-2030 include “reducing the emissions intensity of its gross domestic product by 33 percent to 35 percent by 2030.” By 2030, the NDC aims to attain 40% of total installed power capacity from non-fossil fuel-based energy resources by transferring technologies and obtaining low-cost international financing.
ES 2021’s approach to energy
According to India’s Economic Survey for 2021, the country will need roughly $206 billion between 2015 and 2030 to execute adaptation measures in critical areas like forestry, agriculture, fisheries, water resources, infrastructure, and ecosystems. By 2030, the Economic Survey hopes to have non-fossil sources account for 40% of total installed electricity capacity. It also expects to enhance forest and tree cover by 2030, resulting in an additional carbon sink of 2.5 to 3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide.

According to this analysis, India will contribute to one-fifth of the global renewable energy deployment target by 2030.
