India's wind energy generation capacity fell by a whopping 43% in July, taking the industry by surprise as the monsoon months are the most optimal for generation every year, official data showed. Overall renewable energy generation is 24% less than July last year. Provisional renewable energy generation capacity for July is at 12,242 million units (MU), down from 16,177 MU
severe since renewable energy power plants were included in the Centre's "essential" services category, and continued functioning as before. Conventional power plants might see much more of a drop, Mishra said. "Overall it is obvious that renewable energy plants, which have the must-run status, have been less affected due to Covid-19 rated demand reduction compared to thermal coal," he added.
