In 2015, India set a goal to reach 100GW of solar capacity as part of its larger aim of 175GW of renewable energy in general by 2022. This latest 100GW tender would be for a 2030 or 2035 target. (For context, as of this month the US has about 55.9GW of installed solar capacity total.) In addition to adding capacity, India has also been building out its Inter-State Transmission System (ISTS). Urpelainen told Ars that a single 100GW solar tender would be ambitious but feasible as long as India's economy keeps growing.
