Indian energy scenario

Indias energy usage has been rapidly increasing as a result of economic growth in
the last decade and the large population;
Per capita consumption of electricity in India (2.02kWh) is very low compared to
Canada (51.5kWh), USA (39.25kWh) and other developed countries.
India is one of the major coal importing nations in the world
More than 25% of primary energy needs being met by imports mainly in the form of
crude oil and gas
India is endowed with vast renewable energy resources including wind, solar,
biomass and small hydro.
India needs to develop the available renewable energy to meet its growing power
needs and ensure energy security

Indian clean energy market is largely driven by asset-based


finance to the extent of 94% of the total investment in the sector.
A variety of investors finance renewable energy projects in India,
including institutions, banks, and registered companies
Development Banks-IREDA, continue to represent a key source
of funds for RE investments, particularly in project finance , over
the medium term.
Institutional investors are either state-owned or bilateral and
multilateral institutions
The estimated investment in Indian market will be about 100
billion USD in coming 4 years as per government estimates.

Renewable Energy Policy Initiatives in India


National Solar Mission
Government specified targets for capacity addition in
both grid /off-grid solar
Biggest demand pull program globally
High quantum availability reduces tariff
3 rounds of bidding for solar projects have
happened since its inception
Payment security increases investor confidence
Solar park scheme (draft)
Government support for large scale solar parks
Offer pre-existing infrastructure facilities
Competitive advantage of plugging in projects
SECI is the nodal agency for central support

Biomass & Cogeneration


Specified targets to be achieved within a time frame
Support for fuel security
Robust mechanism to define fuel prices
Command area specifying a minimum radius for
every power plant
Industrial cogeneration has high potential and is
relatively untapped on an organized scale

Scaling up solar energy


Government to scale up solar through 3 key measures
Large scale deployment of rooftop projects
Increased pace of grid connected projects.
Thrust on large scale projects (100 MW min.)
Government ambitions for 100 GW in 6-8 years
National wind mission & offshore policy (draft)
Defined targets with aggressive frameworks for On/off
shore wind; small wind; hybrid and other technologies
Thrust on increased local manufacturing
Resource allocation for faster deployment
Repowering of old wind machines
Single window clearance
Sea Bed Lease Arrangement.
Grid connectivity and evacuation of power
Strengthening of transmission infrastructure
Development of network specifically for wheeling of
RE power.
Integration of existing grid with green corridor.
Strengthening of infrastructure will assist
developers in accurate forecasting of generation 9

Transmission Infrastructure

Existing evacuation infrastructure is not capable


of evacuating proposed capacity additions
A need to integrate of RE based generation to
the existing system
Proposed high capacity transmission systems
(Green energy corridor)

Green Energy Corridor


Will evacuate renewable power from RE rich states
to load centres
Make pockets of RE generation grid interactive
Reduce evacuation losses
Foster reliable forecasting of renewable energy
based generation
Allow Grid scale energy storage & its management
Require a capital outlay of around INR 425
billion(USD 6.964 billion)
