As of 2004 there were about 80,000 unelectrified villages in the country. Of these villages, 18,000 could not be electrified through extension of the conventional grid which lead a serious developments in There are totally eight missions focusing on sustainable energy development, one of the key mission being National Solar Mission(Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission) launched in early 2010 which aims to increase the solar energy capacity of 20GW by 2022. This report presents the economic, social and policy constraints faced by India to achieve the solar energy target of 20GW by 2022. India’s Power Sector India has a installed total power generation capacity of 250256.98 MW as on February, 2014(CEA 2014) stands as third largest producer and consumer of electricity, to fulfill its exponential growth in power requirement it requires a generation capacity of 440GW to be added by 2017. India needs to shift its focus from building base-load plants which are dominated currently to a more balanced mix of base loads and peak production plants, the alternative as solar or other renewable energies is much required as
