Energy Market Overview

Many Indian infrastructure projects – including those in the power sector - are affected by time over runs, placing project viability at risk. Delays in land acquisition and site handover remain key reasons for schedule over runs during the pre-execution phase. Government guidelines to speed-up the process plus the online clearance application system are helping address these challenges

Toward the Sun – Why India’s Solar Industry needs to focus on Technical Due Diligence

As successful solar power plant projects rely on adequate funding, it is imperative for financial institutions to ensure they are backed by technically sound and profitable power plants. This also means that while financial due diligence is critical for investing in a solar project, it is equally imperative to ensure that the project is technically sound

Indian Solar Rooftop PV Projects: A Bright Investment - RESCO vs. CAPEX

The financial palatability of the project, the net present value (NPV), is the highest in Karnataka followed by New Delhi for OPEX model of tenure of 10 years. However, if we observe east and west zones, they are more attractive towards CAPEX model with higher NPVs. In addition, it has been observed that irrespective of type of roof, ownership model will remain same zone wise

Amidst a few clouds, the sun shone brightly on India’s solar sector in 2018

“An immediate rethinking of on-ground policies needs to be done to facilitate the ‘realization’ of solar. While domestic producers of solar-cells need to be protected and their interests promoted, it cannot be done at the cost of increasing the product cost for the end-user, thereby jeopardizing the future of the entire industry. The falling currency rates have definitely not helped the matters either”

Making Electric Vehicle Acceptable and Affordable to Indian Consumer

Developing large scale charge point network in Indian urban environment will be challenging. High upfront capital costs and present low levels of uptake for electric vehicles mean that returns on investment will only be realized over longer periods. That would require for government to create opportunities for investment in new rapid charging infrastructure by reducing key barriers to investment, in particular access to suitable sites with sufficient power

Electric Vehicles & Market Challenges

The cost of an EV in India is determined by the cost of the battery which at this time constitutes around 35 per cent of the cost of the EV. The cost of the battery in turn governed by international dynamics and who holds the minerals required for battery production. Companies in India are working on producing Lithium based batteries in India which is bound to bring battery prices down
