Indian government aims to have 175,000 MW of power generation capacity from renewable sources, including 100,000 MW from solar and 60,000 from wind, by 2022.  There is still a long way to go, but given the circumstances there is a silver lining.

Under the National Solar Mission, the government increased the solar power generation capacity addition target by five times to 100 GW last year.
