Support for renewables 29.1.2019 Financial Chronicle
Sabyasachi Majumdar Given the criticality of power sector for the economy and the fact that there has been a significant focus on reliable power supply and 100 per cent rural electrification throughout the country, the central government may further augment the budgetary allocations towards its flagship schemes - Deendayal Upadhayaya Gram Jyoti Yojna (DUGJY) and Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS).

Headwinds for solar energy 14.1.2019 Financial Chronicle
Trends driving the sector in 2019 India’s enthusiasm as a key proponent of the historic Paris Agreement created an ambitious target of ‘100 GW solar power generation’ for the country. The trends in renewable energy and specifically the solar energy, over the last few years have been driven majorly by this target. In the Utility sector, which translates to about 60% of the target, many market forces as well as government intervention are playing crucial roles in shaping the trends. However, going forward we expect the following to shape the trends in the coming years: Project delivery: A lot of larger wind and solar utility projects have been facing delays on account of project development delays, delays due to land acquisitions and delays due to transmission availability. This commissioning of new utility scale projects has been significantly subdued in the recent past. The low tariffs: The falling tariffs have created an unrealistic tariff expectation among state-owned utilities the past year with ...
