Integration of Renewable Energies into the Indian Electricity System (I-RE)
As of: March 2019
Objective and activities
The project aims to support efforts of the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) to promote climate-friendly development of the Indian power market and increase the proportion of energy from renewable sources. To meet this objective, it will focus on the energy market and the analysis of existing energy systems and on funding mechanisms, particularly to encourage the broader use of decentralised photovoltaic systems on building rooftops. Studies and training will enhance the expertise of the Ministry employees on these issues. The project will explain the advantages of renewable energies which, until now, had been considered too expensive, too unreliable or too fragmented.
State of implementation/results
- Study trips in Germany were held with high-ranking representatives of network operators.
- Successful closure of grid integration study for roof-top PV systems.
