Battery storage, green hydrogen and flexible coal-fired power generation can help India address its next big challenge of integrating large-scale variable renewable energy into the electricity grid over the next decade, according to a new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).

A new regulation that excludes rooftop solar systems over 10 kilowatts (kW) from net metering will stall adoption of larger installations in India, undermining progress towards the government’s rooftop solar target of 40 gigawatts (GW) by 2022.

According to the report 'Capital Flows Underpinning India's Energy Transformation' released by Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), India needs an Investment of USD 500 Billion to reach its target of 450 Gigawatts (GW) of Renewable Energy (RE) by 2030.

A new IEEFA report recommends increasing competition in the development of intra-state transmission infrastructure, to speed up deployment of renewable energy in India.

European pipeline companies are using a loophole to market themselves as low-carbon businesses and avoid reporting on the climate effects of the natural gas they transport, according to a new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).

The net zero emissions target by 2050 is a rational and much-needed emissions reduction target. It is key for Australia to set and meet a net zero emissions target to keep in line with the Paris Agreement to limit warming to less than 2 degrees (and aiming for 1.5 degrees) above pre-industrial levels.

Adani group, owner of India’s most valuable energy company, should lead the Indian energy strategy by further aligning itself with the government’s vision for energy independence and fast-growing reliance on renewables. This has been stated in a new report released by US-based Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).

India’s total wind-solar hybrid capacity is expected to grow rapidly to reach nearly 11.7 gigawatts (GW) by 2023, according to a new report by IEEFA and JMK Research. This is a new and fast-growing market in India.

This briefing note evaluates the potential of indexed renewable energy (RE) tariffs to provide financial respite to discoms, thereby giving them vital breathing room to implement more durable and lasting reforms. RE tariffs have been on a downward trend for several years with record lows recently set once again despite a Covid-19 overhang.
