This report presents the findings of a survey undertaken in east and central Delhi to gauge how residential consumers perceive rooftop solar technology, their levels of awareness, and their willingness to accept new business models. The report also highlights the drivers and barriers to the adoption of rooftop solar in India.

This feasibility study presents the structure and legal framework of a business design facility (the Facility) for clean energy projects in India. It addresses the urgent need for increasing the flow and affordability of private capital into clean energy markets in emerging economies.

This report analyses the risk perceptions of debt financiers towards solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind projects from 2014 to 2018. It also examines recent developments impacting the pace of capacity addition in India.

This policy brief examines the risks involved in the ‘change in law’ clause in renewable energy power purchase agreements (PPAs) in India. It recommends either making provisions more nuanced or revising existing provisions in future PPAs to reduce uncertainty and improve their bankability.

India is undergoing a major energy transition. However, constraints on access to capital — both in terms of adequacy and affordability — are impeding the pace and efficiency of this transition.

In July 2018, the Government of India imposed a two-year safeguard duty on solar cells and modules, in an attempt to protect domestic manufacturing. This policy brief discusses the impact of that duty on the business prospects of manufacturers.

In the state of Punjab in India, burning residue from the annual rice paddy harvest is a practice that dates back decades. Crop waste burning emits particulate matter (both PM10 and PM2.5) and greenhouse gases (GHG), which aggravate the poor air quality in Punjab, Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR).

This study, in collaboration with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), examines India’s National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), existing policies and emission control measures aimed at curbing air pollution, factors contributing to air pollution across the country, and future pathways towards meeting NAAQS ov

Fixing Delhi's air quality requires a deep understanding of the sources that contribute to air pollution. Despite multiple source apportionment studies specific to Delhi NCR, policymakers can’t design an effective action plan due to varying estimates.

This issue brief uses freely available data from satellite-based monitoring, in addition to information from 48 low-cost sensors deployed in four districts in Punjab, to examine seasonal crop residue burning.
