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.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Energy has expressed its concerns about the performance of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and the country’s ability to achieve its 100 GW solar target by 2022.

Power systems need to be increasingly flexible to accommodate rising solar and wind shares. One way to achieve this is by adjusting the demand for electricity to better match generation from solar and wind energy over the course of each hour, day, week or longer timeframe.

In support of the development of the ASEAN Power Grid (APG), the IEA has undertaken a quantitative assessment of the impact of regional power system integration in ASEAN to accommodate the growing share of variable renewable energy (VRE), which consists of solar and wind generation.

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.

This report explores how various political and financial measures could help to “de-risk” renewables investment using onshore wind investments in Serbia and Greece as case examples. The financing costs for renewable energies in Southeast Europe have been significantly higher than for conventional power plants.

The Ministry issued Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy on 14.05.2018 (along with its amendment on 11.10.2018) with the objective to provide a framework for promotion of large grid connected wind-solar PV hybrid system for optimal and efficient utilization of transmission infrastructure and land, reducing the variability in renewable power generation and a

India is blessed with abundant sources of renewable energy and by March 2019 about 77.6 GW RE based capacity has already been installed in the country along with45.4GW of large hydro capacity. Out of total RE capacity wind energy represents a significant share of renewable energy portfolio.

For many years, offshore wind was the expensive cousin of onshore wind with generation costs in the range of $150 to $200 per megawatt hour (MWh).
