Heating and cooling accounts for almost half of global energy consumption. With most of this relying fossil fuels, however, it contributes heavily to greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.

The Government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) has announced its Renewable Energy Export Policy 2020 for solar, wind, and wind-solar hybrid projects. The policy aims to promote the export of renewable energy outside the state without any obligation of power procurement by state distribution companies (DISCOMs).

GSR2020 provides a comprehensive overview of global developments in renewable energy markets, investments and policies in 2019. This year’s report includes a feature chapter on citizen support for renewable energy projects.

Fully decarbonizing global industry is essential to achieving climate stabilization, and reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050–2070 is necessary to limit global warming to 2 °C. This paper assembles and evaluates technical and policy interventions, both on the supply side and on the demand side.

By many measures, the world is still in the early stages of a deep and profound transformation in energy, and industrial and agricultural processes. The aim of that transition is to achieve new policy goals for modern societies – among them, deep cuts in carbon dioxide and other warming gases.

This first in-depth review of India’s energy policies examines the country’s achievements in developing its energy sector as well as the challenges it faces in ensuring a sustainable energy future.

The Wind and Hybrid Energy Policy, 2019 promotes developing new wind as well as hybrid projects, repowering of existing wind projects and hybridisation of existing wind and solar power plants. The policy will also promote blending of renewable power with thermal power, thus helping in reducing fuel consumption and carbon-emission.

This policy brief aims to bridge the asymmetries in information on the modalities of installing a grid-connected rooftop solar (RTS) system or a small solar power plant in Indian states. It provides an easy-to-use guide for consumers, developers, and investors in the RTS sector.

The Rajasthan government has released a draft of new hybrid policy titled, ‘Rajasthan Wind and Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy, 2019’. The largest state in the country, Rajasthan has come up with a draft of the solar-wind hybrid policy that aims to achieve 2000 MW Wind Power capacity.
