This study proposes a hydrogen roadmap for India through a spatio-temporal analysis of the production modes and cost of production of hydrogen from solar and wind energy till 2040.

India set a new record low tariff of Rs2/kWh ($0.027/kWh) in the recent Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) auction on 23 November 2020.

Offshore renewable energy – including offshore wind and solar power, as well as emerging ocean energy technologies – could support sustainable long-term development and drive a vibrant blue economy.

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.

Interest in investing in the Indian renewable energy sector remains strong amid the ongoing Covid‑19 pandemic. In the second quarter of 2020, over 12 GW of utility-scale renewable projects were sanctioned at the peak of a nationwide lockdown. Financial performance expectations are crucial.

Urban microgrids with rooftop solar (RTS) PV and battery energy storage systems (BESS) can help power distribution companies (discoms) meet the accelerating electricity demand in cities. These may be a more convenient alternative to usual methods of procuring additional generation capacity and building new grid infrastructure.

These Guidelines are being issued under the provisions of Section 63 of the Electricity Act, 2003 for long-term procurement of electricity through competitive bidding process, by Procurer(s), from Hybrid Power Projects having individual size of 50 MW and above at one site with minimum bid capacity of 50 MW, subject to the condition that the rate

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.

The main objectives to bring forth this compendium are: to document qualitatively various deployment models of solar powered irrigation systems and to understand the factors impacting scalability of solar powered irrigation systems in India.

The report finds it is unlikely that India – or indeed other countries – will be able to overtake the Gulf region to provide the world’s cheapest solar power in the near term.
