Renewable Energy has grown measurably in the last few years, spurred by ambitious growth targets to reach 175 GW by 2022.
While the absolute growth has been impressive, evidenced by achieving the second highest growth in solar capacity in the world in 2017 (almost 10 GW), the growth has been less than targeted. What is holding RE back? Is it financing? System level economics? DISCOM issues? What happens after 175 GW, regardless of when this is achieved? Does India need storage technologies? New pricing norms?
An expert panel discussed such issues combining technology, finance, global perspectives, and bottom-up insights.
