India is a major player in the global energy economy, being the third largest energy consuming country worldwide. Solar energy has proven an essential role in India for the energy transition and further holds a great potential for the country to meet its ambitious renewable energy targets: net zero emissions by 2070, and meeting fifty percent of its electricity requirements from renewable sources by 2030. India has proven remarkable global leadership in solar energy development on a national and global level and we are thrilled to have the Solar World Congress 2023 take place in India.
You can find more detailed information on India's renewable energy shares and targets in the REN21 Renewables Global Status Report 2022.
The SWC 2023 will take place in the capital of India, New Delhi. The city plays an important role in decision-making for the whole country, hosting government institutions, research and academia, as well as key industry players.
