Integrating higher share of variable renewable energy in India

While India has been adding renewable energy capacity at a fast pace, this new report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) finds that to meet its emissions intensity reduction target for 2030, the country needs to ramp up the share of clean energy in its power system. The report recommends four ways the country can do this – introducing demand-side measures like time-of-use tariffs, developing a well-connected national grid, deploying various energy storage options for grid balancing services and convert its fossil-fuel powered fleet to operate in a flexible manner.
