India’s significant and sustained economic growth is placing enormous demand on its energy resources. However, there is a pervasive demand-supply imbalance that necessitates serious efforts by the government of India to augment energy supplies. The country imports about 80 percent of its oil. With the threat of a further increase in oil prices, serious problems with regard to energy security is anticipated. India also runs the substantial risk of lesser thermal capacity being installed. While dependence on imported coal is increasing, supply of indigenous coal is likely to decrease in the coming years because of production and logistic constraints.
Economic growth, increasing prosperity and urbanization, rise in per capita consumption, and spread of energy access are the key factors that would be responsible for substantially increasing the total demand for electricity. Thus there is an emerging energy supply-demand imbalance. According to a Central Electricity Authority (CEA) report, the anticipated energy and peaking shortage in the country is estimated to be 10.3 percent and 12.9 percent, respectively, in 2011 and 2012. At the same time, a very large proportion of Indian citizens around 50% continue to live with no access to electricity and other forms of commercial energy.
Developing renewable energy can help India increase its energy security, reduce adverse impacts on the local environment, lower its carbon intensity, contribute to a more balanced regional development, and realize its aspirations for leadership in high-technology industries. According to a KPMG report, India is the third most favoured destination globally, for investments in the renewable energy sector. The report also says that the country will be a major source of new entrants into the sector, after the US and China. The Indian renewable energy market has become increasingly dynamic in recent years as a result of strong natural resources, greater
accommodation to international investments and a variety of government incentives. Solar and wind energy will be the major areas to witness overseas investments and acquisitions in the near future.
Role of Renewable Energy
The role of new and renewable energy has been assuming increasing significance in recent times with the growing concern for the country's energy security. Energy self-sufficiency was identified as the major driver for new and renewable energy in the country in the wake of the two oil shocks of the 1970s. Renewable energy can make a substantial contribution in each of the above mentioned areas. It is in this context that the role of renewable energy needs to be seen. It is no longer “alternate energy”, but is increasingly becoming a vital part of the solution to the nation’s energy needs.
In terms of all renewable energy categories, India is currently ranked fifth in the world with 15,691.4 MW grid-connected and 367.9 MW off-grid renewable-energy based power capacity. India is among the top five destinations worldwide for solar energy development according to Ernst & Young’s renewable energy attractiveness index.
As on March 31, 2012, installed capacity of renewable energy based power generation was 24,503MW, which is about 12 percent of the total installed capacity of 199,626 MW. The major renewable energy sources (RES) are wind energy, solar energy, biomass & waste energy, and small-hydro energy.
