In this session, we will discuss the role of distributed energy resources in meeting India’s energy transition goals, as proposed by Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA). IEEFA has recently completed a study that looks at what India can learn from the Australian experience of integrating distributed energy resources (DER). The study suggests how India can leapfrog into a system where DER is central, planned for and taken advantage of, driving deflation and sustainable energy for all. It claims that India has the opportunity to plan for the combination of rooftop solar with storage - both small-scale batteries and electric vehicles.
Drawing on rich experience of our panellists on Indian as well as global experience with DER, we aim to explore the opportunities and challenges of prioritising DER in India’s 21st century energy system, and possible way forward.
