Charging Stations for EVs can help drive demand for the sector's growth in the country

There are around 4,000 charging stations that are planned to be set up in the country which would constitute only 1 per cent of the total charging stations projected to be needed by the end of 2030. This is meant to encourage the use of EVs and create enough demand to attract other players to set up charging stations, thus creating a bigger market for EVs in the near future

Rooftop segment poses biggest challenge to India’s solar initiative

While the 60-GW ground-mounted solar target is still achievable, rooftop solar presents the real challenge. We have to make it click or the 2022 target of 100 GW will turn out to be just a flight of fancy.Though the fastest-growing segment within India’s renewable energy sector, rooftop solar is still not growing fast enough, as ideally required to get to the elusive target. This is mainly because of lack of policy initiatives like net-metering and incentives for financial investors.

How are power grids becoming situationally aware?

Considering the critical nature of power systems, gaining the time-synchronized, real-time view of the transmission and distribution network at the right time, by the right person, is key for taking timely right decisions. Conventional systems (RTUs and SCADA) used to gain the essential information (magnitude), while the new devices (PMUs - Phasor Measuring Units) capture the magnitude and phase angle. This in turn gives information on the phase angle differences (grid stress), small signal stab
