Although India does have a goal of renewable energy of 450 GW by 2030, it is not clear how this will be achieved in each state and what resources will make up the new energy mix at that time. By enabling a structure, it will allow Discoms across the country to prepare for this increase in solar energy in the grid as well as the reduction in fossil fuel-based energy.

According to Mr. K.R. Harinarayan, Founder and CEO, U-Solar Clean Energy Solutions Pvt. Ltd: “It is imperative that solar policies are consistent across all states in India. Currently, each state has its own policy which guides the impact of solar installation growth for rooftop, grid-scale, and open access. If the policies are standardized to a certain extent across India, it will make it easier for the transition towards clean and green energy as well as detail a plan to transition out of coal and another fossil fuel-based energy.” He further continues, “Although India does have a goal of renewable energy of 450 GW by 2030, it is not clear how this will be achieved in each state and what resources will make up the new energy mix at that time. By enabling a structure, it will allow DISCOMs across the country to prepare for this increase in solar energy in the grid as well as the reduction in fossil fuel-based energy. Our hope is that state and central level policymakers can work together to set standardized guidelines for solar rooftop, ground mount, and open access installations that can support the boost in solar energy to meet our targets.
