This report provides insights on creating an ecosystem for India's successful transition away from hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), maps the global regulatory options that could be adopted, and emphasises on the need for policy certainty.

With the government announcing 100 per cent household electrification in Uttar Pradesh (UP) under Saubhagya scheme, newly connected households are likely to place greater financial burden on electricity distribution companies (discoms) due to poor metering, infrequent billing, and inefficient collection of dues.

This study evaluates the MSME sector in terms of its physical and financial performance and the current state of awareness and its perceptions and responsiveness towards energy efficiency.

Installing rooftop solar panels, or even buying power from a community rooftop solar plant, may make electricity bill payments cheaper, according to a recent study.

In order to accelerate the global transition to clean energy, it is important to systematically identify the risks associated with RE deployment and address these risks through a combination of policy and market-based interventions.

This brief examines the issue of curtailment for technical and commercial reasons and its impact on stakeholders; must-run status for renewable power; and the prospective role of granting compensation for grid unavailability and instability.

India’s firm commitment towards the global clean energy transition is evident from its renewable energy (RE) deployment targets as well as the policy measures taken to facilitate RE deployment and its integration at higher shares.
