Policy and regulatory framework to accelerate energy storage deployment in India

India is forecasted to account for 40% of the world’s additional energy demand by 2040 and plans to meet a large majority of this growing energy demand from renewable energy sources. Energy storage is vital for managing the expected supply and demand variability increase.   The Government of India is in the early stages of shaping the policy and regulatory framework for energy storage in the country. This brief collates inputs from businesses on ways to strengthen the framework and policy measures.   Developed in collaboration with World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the brief presents the collective policy and regulatory recommendations from over 25 companies on priority action areas for the central government to accelerate energy storage deployment.

The Evolving Landscape of Urban Air Mobility in India

1.0 Introduction Today, over 4.46 billion people, or more than half the world’s population live in the cities. They are at the epicentre of economic activity, where more than 80% of global GDP is generated. As urban road transport density has grown, it has created several environmental challenges such as poor quality of air and water, improper waste disposal, and high energy usage. In Indian metropolitan cities (like Mumbai, Delhi, and Chennai), an average commute takes a whopping 90 -minutes and air pollution is one of the leading causes of

Public EV Charging Infrastructure in India

The availability of user-friendly public charging infrastructure is one of the key requirements for accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles in India.

Charging of Electric Vehicles

One of the critical success factors for electric vehicle deployment is establishment of a well-designed charging infrastructure. Over time there has been developments taking place in this area in terms of charging protocols, standards, and safety precautions.

Knowledge Paper on Pumped Storage Projects in India

Pumped Storage Projects (PSP) are becoming more crucial in providing peak power and preserving system stability in the power systems of many countries, even though numerous types of energy storage systems have been constructed globally. Pumped storage technique is the time-tested, financially viable, highly effective. Along with this, it is important to consider the timely completion of PSPs for making the project financially viable.This paper covers various technological advancements and innovative concepts of PSP around the globe. Paper covers the global scenario of PSP to understand the status of capacity addition and various measures undertaken by the countries for development of PSP. The knowledge gained from this paper will guide the reader in evaluating and understanding key issues and challenges for development of PSP.
