Methodologically, the current study relies on the available literature review based on qualitative and quantitative data.We adopt a sectoral system of innovation framework for the study. The sectoral system of innovation approach has composed of various actors, agents, institutions, types and structure of interactions among firms and non-firms organizations. The main findings of the study are the number of research publications in the sectors has been increased gradually in India. The country ranks among the top ten country in terms of knowledge production pertaining to the field of solar which stands at fifth position and wind energy at the sixth position. In terms of R and D investment in both solar and wind energy the country is far behind others leading countries. Though, there is a significant presence of productive R and D organization, academia and supportive regulatory policy initiatives in both sectors.
