Piyush Goal
It is time for the people of India to get ready and embrace the change with a ‘New Mindset’ of a ‘New Grid’ for a ‘New India’, which is ready to integrate large amount of renewable energy. It is appropriate time following on Honorable Prime Minister’s meeting with the U.S. President under a robust and focused U.S.-India Energy Partnership. The ministry is extremely appreciative of the continued engagement and support from USAID and congratulates all the stakeholders including POSOCO, NREL, LBNL on the achievement of this outcome. Combined and collaborative efforts such as these are labour and data intensive and detailed and often go unsung but are critical to creating the backbone for a reliable grid.

USAID has a long-standing collaboration with the Government of India in the area of energy. Energy is a key determinant of growth and India needs sustainable energy sources to continue to grow at 7-8 percent annually. Introducing renewable energy solutions into established energy systems often requires changes to well-established policy, institutions, and market structures. This study will prove to be helpful in scaling up renewable energy in India effectively and sustainably.

"India- enlightened the august gathering with the commitment shown by India towards integration of Renewables amidst Commercial and technical challenges being prevalent in India. There is need for flexibility and the biggest challenge for India is matching the demand and generation complexities. Load forecasting demands bigger involvement and meeting this demand with effective portfolio management is what is the need of the hour and furthermore the states to utilize the robust grid infrastructure for RE integration."

Greening the Grid initiative offers a toolkit for information and guidance materials to support emerging economies like India in defining and implementing grid integration roadmaps for renewable energy. It also sets a platform for deliberations on strategies for Indo-US co-operation towards energy security and strengthening energy linkages between the two countries. I am sure the learning that has come out of this will be applicable to a lot of emerging economies who are going on a path of bringing in more renewable into the system.

The key challenges faced include the factor of unpredictability in forecasting of renewables for the operators. There is need for technology support to ensure accurate forecasting and scheduling, and financial support for battery storage, R&D support and better tariff structure promoting rooftop generation.”

"Green Energy Corridors are one key element to achieve this goal. Integrating such a large quantum of variable power into the existing grid is a challenge and requires specific knowledge and skills, adequate regulations, enabling policies and flexible market mechanisms. Thus policy cooperation in Green Energy Corridors was initiated and Germany also supported India in the expansion of the transmission grid to be capable of taking in more renewable power with concessional loans of up to 1.4 billion Euros through KfW bank. More funds are yet to be committed."

Several states, particularly Tamil Nadu, have invested great deal to switch to RE and the state is planning to add much more RE than the 5 GW of solar and 4.5 GW of wind target set by MOP. RE is a commitment to the future generations. The GTG report is very comprehensive, well researched, very timely and very pertinent to the challenges Tamil Nadu faces.

In India, our entry point for the adoption of renewables, with declining prices, is at an advantageous point and our pace of adoption would be faster. Integration is not only technical issue, but also regulatory and policy related. We need to be prepared with reliable systems and smart grids to integrate this fast change. The six pilots proposed under Greening the Grid are very relevant.

Flexibility is very relevant these days and we are receiving feedback from across the world and we thank USAID India for facilitating this workshop. As public sector enterprise, with USAID support we will be able to move forward.

The recommendations captured in the GTG study report is apt but we need to ensure its implementation. There are difficulties in bringing all the stakeholders on board and everybody needs to be aware of the challenges including policy makers, regulators and the private sector. There is no technical issues in integrating RE but addressing the financial implications is very important.

In 2010, when we thought of adding solar, we were very skeptical and took out a tender for only 70 MW and recently we tendered for 1200 MW. Things have changed at a very rapid pace and is thus resulting in difficulties. We have long term PPAs with thermal generators and with rapid RE generations, we have to handle this in terms of policy and regulations. We need follow up this GTG study to model the contracts, distributed generation and do other analysis. This is the beginning and a good exercise especially for a RE rich state such as ours.

It is good for the country to go green, but at the same time there should be some checks and balances to have minimum impact on the consumers. Certain regulations are required to ease the SLDCs’ operations, including forecasting of wind and solar energy as well as ancillary services, to compensate for balancing services.

In Indian scenario, coal will be the main stay and with augmentation in Renewable Energy, coal plants designed for base load operation will have to be modified for flexible operation. We are aiming for close to 40% of RE mix by 2022 and the challenges lies in operating the fossil fuel plants at minimum loads. Need of the hour is that we need to make our plants more flexible.
