This study discusses the economic analysis of a medium-sized solar plant (1 MW) connected to agriculture under different business models: farmer-owned, discom-owned and third-party-owned. It’s a case study on solarising the agriculture load in Tata Power’s license area in North Delhi.

This study evaluates the feasibility of green hydrogen-based steelmaking [hydrogen-based direct reduced iron (H-DRI) & electric arc furnace (EAF)] in India by providing insights into the techno-economics and associated environmental benefits. It considers four-time horizons: 2020 (current), 2030 (medium-term), and 2040 to 2050 (long-term).

Using data from the nationally representative India Residential Energy Consumption Survey (IRES) 2020, this study reflects on the current state of clean cooking energy access in India, the progress made over the past decade, persisting gaps, and emerging trends.

This study intends to help unlock the potential of two solarisation models - solarisation of rural electricity feeders and solarisation of individual grid-connected pumps - to power India’s irrigation needs.

This issue brief highlights the escalating momentum of Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) in India amidst a growing net-zero debate across the globe. CCUS has been a topic of discussion for more than two decades, but it has not gained any focus because of limited research, finance and policy support.

This study analyses green bonds issued by Indian RE developers in international markets since the first issuance in 2014 to the first half of 2021. Bonds issued for financing or refinancing RE assets typically carry third-party certification as ‘green’ bonds.
