Distributed Renewable Energy
We have wide ranging experience in formulation, analysis and advocacy for policies of central and state governments for the implementation of distributed renewable energy systems. Our wide spectrum of clientele implies that we invariably look at key issues from the perspective of multiple stakeholders – from the government to project developers to consumers.
Holistic analysis of regulatory framework with incisive insights are crucial for successful implementation of capacity development programmes of the government, investment decisions of developers and ensuring commercial viability of projects for consumers. We have assisted development banks and multilateral agencies in streamlining the adoption of rooftop solar systems while maintaining compliance with the regulations of the state.
Market assessment services are indispensable for setting goals and targets and developing strategies to achieve the same. From assessing the needs of very localised and trade-specific industrial clusters for rooftop solar systems to estimating state or nation-wide potentials and trends for multiple facets of renewable energy deployment, our experience is diverse. Our experience has always helped our clients make the right business choices. Governments, state nodal agencies, industry forums and large business houses have all benefited from our experience.
We contribute to the development of renewable energy through assistance in the development of unique RE projects, of which many have been pioneering pilot projects in the given domain like enabling net-metering for metro rail systems spread over multiple locations, assisting utility companies develop strategies for maximizing RE sales to C&I consumers and enabling large consumers to incorporate renewable energy into their portfolio. We also provide process support and digitalization using our in-house IT capabilities and industry-leading practices. Our widely acclaimed products like single-window rooftop project clearance and knowledge database portals ensure seamless transition of state policies and national programmes from concept to implementation with ultimate benefit to the ordinary consumers.
With solar PV technologies having reached grid parity and banking facilities being gradually withdrawn in the major RE-rich states, it is imperative that renewable energy capacity addition be looked at in conjunction with energy storage. We are in tune with the latest happenings on this frontier having contributed to the uptake of both utility scale storage solutions and driving policy and regulatory advocacy in this direction.
Our experience with a wide array of end user scenarios like urban local bodies, government PSU’s, industrial consumers, agricultural consumers implies that we have dealt with all aspects of project design and structuring. From developing innovative business models to execution of power purchase agreements and stakeholder contracts, our clients have experienced tangible benefits in the form of efficient commercial and regulatory performance.
We believe that no two projects are the same. We provide custom made solutions for various renewable energy technologies ranging from mature technologies like solar PV and biomass to futuristic technologies like tidal, offshore and geothermal energy systems. The solutions comprise of need assessment, power plant sizing and yield assessment, procurement strategies, load-generation balance simulations, detailed financial modelling and risk assessment.
We have executed training and capacity building assignments for governments, large corporates, think-tanks, industry bodies and the like. Our engagement through multilateral agencies has impact on the process developments in many major states in India which has benefited most states in some way or the other.
