Power - Generation, Transmission & Distribution

Energy is one of the most important infrastructure components necessary for economic growth and the welfare of countries. The presence and development of adequate infrastructure is essential for the continued growth of the Indian economy. India is the third largest producer in the world and the third largest consumer of electricity.

The Indian energy sector is one of the most fragmented in the world. Renewable sources range from conventional sources such as coal, lignite, natural gas, oil, hydro and nuclear to conventional alternative sources such as wind, solar energy and agricultural and domestic waste. The world’s largest solar plant (648 MW), shipped within 8 months, and the world’s largest solar park (2 GW) is now in India.

Demand for electricity in the country has grown rapidly and is expected to increase significantly in the coming years. In order to meet the growing demand for electricity in the country, a significant addition to installed power generation is needed. India has great potential for generating power but does not have enough infrastructure to supply and distribute. To address this, the Government of India is introducing a program called “Power for All”

Advantage India and Market size

  • Growing Demand

    – India’s energy sector or the energy, distribution and distribution sector is undergoing a major transformation that has redefined the industry outlook. Stable economic growth continues to drive demand for electricity in India. With rapid electrification of rural areas across the country and the Government of India’s focus on attaining, the ‘Power of all’ has accelerated the country’s capacity. The constant increase in electricity consumption and per capita consumption is expected to drive growth in energy consumption to 2000 TWh by 2024.

     

Wind power is estimated to provide 60 GW, followed by solar power at 100 GW by 2022 and 15GW from biomass and hydropower. The renewable energy index is expected to increase to 175 GW by 2022.
.

  • Attractive Opportunities

    –  Increasing growth avenues in renewable power segment, driven by the target to achieve renewable installed capacity of 175 GW by F22.

    India will see huge energy investment around USD 100 billion by 2024.

  • Policy Support

    –  Government is providing huge support by the liberal policies for private equity such as DDUGJY, UDAY & IPDS.

  • Higher Investments

Renewable Energy Industry in India

India’s renewable energy sector is the fourth largest renewable energy market in the world. India ranks fourth in wind energy, fifth in solar energy and fifth in renewable energy. According to a report on Climate scope, India ranks second among the emerging economies leading to a transition to clean energy.

Renewable energy installations have been rising at a rapid pace over the last few years. With a number of government subsidies and developed economies, the sector has attracted the attention of investors. As India aims to meet its energy demand itself, which is expected to reach 15,820 TWh by 2040, renewable energy is set to play an important role. The Indian government has set an ambitious goal of achieving up to 175 GW of 205 electric power. This includes 100 GW of additional solar power and 60 GW of wind power. The government plans to establish 500 GW of renewable energy by 2030.

Up to 100% FDI in India’s renewable energy sector and distribution projects in accordance with the provisions of The Electricity Act, 2003 are allowed under the default method.

Government Initiatives

The Indian government has identified the energy sector as one of the significant factors driving continued industrial growth. Some of the steps taken by the Government of India to improve India’s energy sector are:

 

  • The Union Budget 2020-21 has allocated INR 15,8750 millions (US$ 2.27 billion) to the Ministry of Power and INR 5,5000 millions (US$ 786.95 million) towards the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY).
  • The Government plans to establish 500 GW of renewable energy by 2030.
  • The Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana- Saubhagya, launched by the Government of India with the aim of achieving universal household electrification.
  • The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy sets solar energy prices at Rs 2.50 (US $ 0.04) and Rs 2.68 (US $ 0.04) by developers developing using imported solar cells and modules.
  • The Government of India ratified the National Biofuel Policy, the expected benefits of this policy are health benefits, clean environment, employment of people, and dependency on imports, boosting infrastructure investment in rural areas and increased income for farmers.

Road Ahead

The Indian government has announced its mission to reach the production capacity of 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022, which includes 100 GW of solar power and 60 GW of wind power. The Union Government of India is preparing a ‘roof lease’ policy to finance its stone generating gigawatts (GW) of energy through 2022 rooftop projects.

Coal power capacity is being generated in India, currently at 260 GW and it is expected to reach 330-441 GW by 2040.

India can become the first country in the world to use LEDs for all lighting needs, thus saving INR 40,0000 Millions (US $ 6.23 billion) annually.

All states of India are ready to achieve the Indian Government’s vision of ensuring 24 x 7 energy and quality for everyone, as is the Department of Energy and Renewable Energy, Government of India.
