The policy frameworks announced by the state and central governments are key drivers of development of renewable energy (including hydro power) in India, especially the recent policy push for development of 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022. Various states are also structuring their policy framework towards this target.
We offer advisory services to both central and state governments to devise suitable policy framework for promotion of renewable energy as well as other clear energy sources like hydro power. It also advises the other non-government organisations to prepare the policy road map and roll out plan for the development of various renewable energy sources.
The Electricity Act 2003 is the pioneer legislative framework for development of renewable energy in India. The Act introduced provisions related to promotional measures for development of renewable energy including grid connectivity, specifying feed-in tariff and renewable purchase obligation, etc. The Act also directs Electricity Regulatory Commission (both state and central) to structure regulations taking into account the mandate to promote renewable energy.
We offer services to Regulatory Commissions for formulating appropriate Regulations/Orders for promotion of renewable energy including grid connectivity, renewable energy certificates, feed-in tariff and renewable purchase obligations, etc. We also offer services to utilities and investors, to understand the implications of regulatory framework and support them in early adaption to those regulations.
