“We May Soon Say Goodbye to Monofacial”

As bifacial technology establishes itself in the market, module cost is likely to fall further to be competitive with monofacial. This will have a significant impact on financial models. Bifacial technology is no more a future vision, it is becoming the reality.

Blockchain Technology in the Indian Power Sector

While there are 24+ use cases of blockchain technology in the power sector, the one gaining the most traction at present is P2P power trading, where owners of small-scale generation can sell excess generation directly to other consumers. A blockchain-enabled P2P model allows much greater flexibility and could be a powerful enabler for a customer-centric transactive energy regime

Role of InvITs in Monetizing Power Sector

In the past, the entire infrastructure spends of the country has been either financed by banks or public spending, which results not only in asset-liability mismatches but also in restricting the acceleration of new infrastructure development. This is exactly where InvITs have shown credibility to be the game-changer for the infrastructure sector in India and transform the way infrastructure is financed in India

Looking ahead to 2020 and beyond

Renewables are not yet displacing conventional power generation. 2020 will see the growing integration of renewable and conventional power that India needs. This brings us to transmission and distribution (T&D) where integrating renewable and conventional power supplies requires grid modernization

Moving towards e-mobility

What takes precedent? The establishment of charging infrastructure or adoption of electric vehicles. This has been a major debate since the revolution towards e-mobility started. The setting up of charging infrastructure involves investing in the charger and in few cases, cost of the supporting grid infrastructure as well. Moreover, there is still ambiguity as to what is the right fit (profitable) business model to ensure proper billing and compensation to charging point operators

Getting closer to the reality of low-emission mobility

As we progress in this evolving business landscape, a booming segment like EV will gain a huge advantage by integrating a lighter and strong frame as it will increase the car’s capacity of carrying heavy batteries. The automotive industry ahead will witness an influx of more autonomous vehicles and digital technologies where lightweight materials will be a key factor in the manufacturing of these new-age transportation solutions

Financing rooftop solar is easier than thought

While viability has been frequently talked about, funding options have not been given their share of limelight in the popular media. It is high time that appropriate awareness is created amongst the residential consumer. That along with the appropriate policy and regulatory support will truly blossom the segment and help surpass (not just meet) the ambitious target of 40GW by 2022

Solar Net Metering: Need of The Hour for The Indian Solar Sector

On the backdrop of the need to accelerate renewable energy generation while tackling the issues of climate change and rapidly increasing power demand – some urgent corrective measures are required in India’s solar sector. Especially, in the rooftop solar segment, where the growth has been slow for a while, net metering can bring in the much-needed push for C&I players to seriously consider transitioning to clean energy

Solar Rooftop: Tapping The Vast Potential To Meet 100 GW Target

Uneven and constantly changing state policies have created confusion in a market that is already technologically unclear in a consumers’ mind leading to rampant decision paralysis. System integrators have to bear the brunt of this since their sales lead cycled and business development costs skyrocket. A single centrally controlled policy will immensely help the industry.
