Renewables Integration in India 2021: Report

Recently NITI Aayog and International Energy Agency (IEA) have released the report ‘Integration of Renewables 2021 in India’.

Highlights of the report

  • The report said that India is the third largest energy consuming country in the world.
  • Per capita electricity consumption is still about a third of the world average. Additionally, this is likely to increase despite the government’s commitment to adopting strong energy efficiency standards, including LED lighting, efficient cooling and building standards.
  • Most of India’s renewable capacity addition is in the form of solar and wind power. There is a lot of variability with regard to renewable energy in the states of India.
  • India’s power system can efficiently integrate renewable energy (175 GW by 2022 and 450 GW by 2030). But this will require resource identification and proper planning, regulatory, policy and institutional support, energy storage and advance technology initiatives.

Major recommendations of NITI Aayog

  • The technical and economic barriers between inter-state trade should be removed.
  • A regulatory and remunerative framework should be developed for energy storage with specific reference to battery storage and pump-storage hydro, so that their full value can be realized.
  • Time of Use (TOU) tariffs will be an effective tool for demand side management and encouraging flexible consumption.
  • There is a need for monitoring and management of rooftop solar systems.
