MNRE proposes policy to increase the adoption of decentralised renewable energy in rural areas

The MNRE has outlined a policy plan to encourage the adoption of decentralised renewable energy (DRE) systems in rural India to improve livelihood generation. These systems include solar dryers, solar-powered cold storage, solar lighting and solar charkha, which can directly help in the generation of livelihood. The proposed policy framework includes creating a market-oriented framework to attract private players for the development of DRE systems, providing easier access to end-user finance for DRE livelihood options, implementing monitoring and evaluation frameworks, developing skills, improving service infrastructure at local levels, and encouraging innovation to improve the cost efficiency of DRE systems.
