Project proposals total 2,500 MW solar energy in second batch of bidding. Launched last year, the ambitious Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission of the government (JNNSM) continues to lure private players. For the 350 MW of capacity proposed in the second batch of the phase one of the solar mission, requests have come pouring for a total of 2,500 MW capacity. The first phase of the solar mission running from 2010 to 2013 has a target of connecting 1,000 MW solar capacity to the national electricity grid. The first phase has two batches.

This report provides insights on the potential and key drivers for energy efficiency within the power sector value chain - generation, grids, commercial, residential and industrial use of electricity- including nine business cases and policy recommendations.

To fight climate change, it is not enough to generate electricity from renewable sources. The grid infrastructure must be enhanced too.

The objectives of these guidelines are: To facilitate a quick start up of the JNNSM; To ensure serious participation for projects to be selected under JNNSM; To facilitate speedier implementation of the new projects to be selected to meet the Phase I target of JNNSM; To enhance confidence in the Project Developers; and To promote manufacturin

With wind energy being the most realistic large-scale renewable energy source in the near future, we examine the target for wind energy penetration in India for 2020.

Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) was launched by Prime Minister of India in January 2010 with an aim to promote ecologically sustainable growth while addressing India’s energy security challenge. This is the proposed technology configurations for grid connected solar power demonstration projects under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission

This IEA roadmap provides a consensus view on the current status of smart grid technologies and maps out a global path for expanded use of smart grids, together with milestones and recommendations for action, for technology and policy development.

Scaling-up adoption of renewable energy technology—such as solar home systems (SHS)—to expand electricity access in developing countries can accelerate the transition to low-carbon economic development. Using a national household survey, this study quantifies the carbon and distributional benefits of SHS programs in Bangladesh. Three key findings are generated from
