 Declaring renewable energy to be the future of India, Power and Renewable Energy Minister Piyush Goyal on Monday said 25 new solar parks will be added in the country. 
 
"Twenty five additional solar parks will be added in India, he said at seminar on renewable energy here during the ongoing 'Make in India Week' event. 
The minister said India's ambitious target of generating 175 gigawatt power by 2022 from renewable sources, includes 100 GW from solar, 60 GW from wind, 10 GW from biomass and GW from small hydroelectric projects. 
Goyal said in the next six and half years, the thrust will be in the areas of hydroelectricity and bio fuels. 
"Our vision is to give extra thrust to bio fuels. This sector will help reduce pollution, increase income of farmers and India can even become self sufficient in petrol, he said. 
"Renewable energy is essential to fulfil the government's aim to provide 24x7 power for all citizens by 2019, he added. 
India's current wind power capacity is around 25 GW, and solar power generation capacity of GW.
