Indian Navy sets 21MW solar power target

Aiming to reduce its carbon footprint, the Indian Navy has set a target of producing 21 MW of solar power and is also looking at tapping the energy of oceans for power generation.  

For this, the navy has pledged to use 1.5 per cent of its work budget for generating renewable energy.

The navy has set itself an "aggressive target" of 21 MW solar power installation, to be implemented in three phases. The initiative is in line with the National Mission for achieving 100 GW solar system installations by 2022. 

Additionally, the navy has also pledged to use 1.5 percent of its works budget towards renewable energy generation. Under this scheme, solar projects are being undertaken at various naval stations across all Commands. Naval stations, with scarce available land, have resorted to the deploying rooftop solar PV panels.
