Guidelines for a model renewable energy policy in Indian states

This document consists of Guidelines, to lay the grounds towards the preparation of a Model Comprehensive Renewable Energy (RE) Policy in Indian states. The Guidelines provide an overall policy framework to support State Government and other agencies to formulate long-term and comprehensive State Renewable Energy Policy. The Guidelines have a dual objective: to connect with the national-level renewal energy aspirations and to combine with the state-level specific needs and situations. The Guidelines consist of the
policy objectives, key pointers and alternatives to develop the RE sector in a state. This document fills the present serious gap of the absence of any such model guidelines or standards for the states to form their renewable energy related policies. The Guidelines will give the States a uniform set of principles/approach in formulation of their State Renewable Energy policy.
