India has installed just 6 percent of the 40 gigawatts of rooftop solar power systems target it set in July 2015 to reach its overall renewables target of 145 gigawatts by 2022, putting the country on track to miss its goal by a wide margin. Reaching this target would significantly reduce India’s reliance on coal and enable the country to fulfill its Paris Agreement commitment to reduce the carbon intensity of its gross domestic product by 33 to 35 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.
