Scaling up RE100 in India
We’ve launched three reports that emphasise the role of commercial & industrial (C&I) consumers in the uptake of RE in India. They delve into the necessary enabling environment to support Indian companies to achieve 100% RE and become RE100 members.
Report 1: The potential of corporate renewable electricity demand to influence India's renewables growth
The first report on the potential of corporate renewable electricity demand to influence India's renewables growth, assesses India’s power demand under evolving policy scenarios. It estimates the potential influence corporate RE demand has on India's overall RE growth and outlines the state of play for different RE procurement options for Indian companies. The report draws a comparison amongst the key RE sourcing options and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Report 2: A business case for rationalisation of green tariffs in India
A business case for rationalisation of green tariffs in India highlights green tariffs (GT) as an innovative RE procurement instrument. This report gives an overview of national GT policies, compares state-wise GT policies (as of March 2022), and examines best practices, opportunities & impediments for RE100 companies to adopt GT, while also considering other emerging RE instruments. The report summarises the impact of GT under various scenarios of renewable purchase obligation (RPO) targets through different case studies.
Report 3: A business case for Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for Indian companies to meet RE100 targets
A business case for Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for Indian companies to meet RE100 targets focuses on RECs as a sourcing option and how its potential can be maximised in the Indian market. This report recognises the challenges in the current REC regime. It also reviews the reforms proposed by the Ministry of Power to address some issues like validity, price bands, REC issuance period and bilateral trading which can enhance the market growth of RECs.
