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.

In recent years, governments have increasingly focused on innovation as a means to accelerate clean energy transitions and meet climate targets under the Paris Agreement.

Reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is at the heart of the world’s accelerating shift from climate-damaging fossil fuels towards clean, renewable forms of energy. The steady rise of solar photovoltaic (PV) power generation forms a vital part of this global energy transformation.

The How2Guide for Solar Energy, a collaborative effort between the IEA and the International Solar Alliance (ISA), aims to provide stakeholders from government, industry, and civil society with the methodology and tools required to successfully plan and implement a roadmap for solar energy at the national or regional levels.

Offshore wind is a rapidly maturing renewable energy technology that is poised to play an important role in future energy systems. In 2018, offshore wind provided a tiny fraction of global electricity supply, but it is set to expand strongly in the coming decades into a $1 trillion business.

Reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is at the heart of the world’s accelerating shift from climate-damaging fossil fuels towards clean, renewable forms of energy. In addition to fulfilling the Paris Agreement, renewables are crucial to reduce air pollution, improve health and well-being, and provide affordable energy access worldwide.

Coal power generation dominates electricity supply in Developing Asia, and more than 400 gigawatts (GW) of new coal-fired capacity is planned for operation by 2030. Past studies on thermal electricitywater nexus have not accounted for this new capacity, and use coarse spatial and temporal resolutions in the assessment of long-term power system reliability.

DRE enterprises have been acting as dedicated clean energy solutions provider for the un-served and under-served segments of Indian population.

The Gaza Strip is a densely populated area with limited water and power resources. The groundwater aquifer is the only available source, with a deficit of 145 million cubic metres per year between demand and supply. Consequently, the quality of the aquifer has deteriorated and water desalination plants are being constructed.

The viability of storing solar power using batteries and using the same power during peak times is increasing due to declining battery prices, said Raj Pratap Singh, Chairman, Uttar Pradesh Electri
