The Impact of COVID-19 on Indian Solar Industry

Projects which are to be commissioned by June will be particularly affected. Rating agency CRISIL has estimated that about 3-GW solar projects worth Rs 16,000 crore will bear the brunt of coronavirus. Since most of these projects are connected with the interstate transmission system, any inordinate delay in their commissioning may invite transmission/point of connection charges from the Power Grid Corporation of India under Long Term Open Access rules

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

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
