To date, the government’s primary focus of renewable energy expansion has been on large grid-scale solar. However, achieving India’s ambitious renewable energy targets will also require an increase in distributed renewable energy (DRE) projects. If a more favorable regulatory and policy environment is created, such DRE projects, though smaller in size, have greater scalability potential. They also avoid the long lead times and execution bottlenecks associated with public-sector offtake procurement projects.
This recent report titled “The Future of Distributed Renewable Energy in India” by Climate Policy Initiative, outlines the benefits and market potential of India’s DRE sector. It also examines the current policy and institutional landscape and provide tailored recommendations for the different stakeholders.
