Most of the part of India is enriched with solar heat radiations. Also coastal reason of many states and desert reason of some states observes a continuous wind flow which is very suitable for wind energy generation. Apart from the major renewable energy sources (RES) like wind, solar and bagasse other renewable energy sources such as geothermal, tidal, biomass, generation from waste etc. has already been explored although amount of energy production by them is considerably less in comparison to major renewable energy sources. For the last fiscal year 2016-17, energy generation by RES were 7% only of the total electrical energy generation.
