It operates as a wholly owned Government of India ("GoI") enterprise under the administrative control of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

Within power financing NBFCs, the company holds the largest share of credit toward the RE sector, second only to Power Finance Corporation. However, unlike Power Finance Corporation, which is also involved in sectors such as infrastructure, roads, and mining, IREDA is solely dedicated to the RE sector.
