Open Access for Renewables in India, 2018 - Size & Growth, Tariff Trends, Key Players & Capacities and State Profiles - ResearchAndMarkets.com

January 7, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 7, 2019--The “Open Access for Renewables in India 2018” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

A key emerging trend in India’s power sector is the shift from power offtake contracts signed with government-owned utilities to serving direct consumers. This is happening through acquisitions, franchises and privatisation, but most of all, through the open access route, where regulators have allowed direct power sales to end-consumers.

Open access market has been attracting increasing investments in the renewable energy space. Particularly in the case of Karnataka, it propelled the state to lead renewable energy charts in 2017-2018.

The government’s proposed amendments to the Electricity Act 2003, if enacted, will only accelerate this trend towards open access-based PPAs for solar and power plants. Specifically, the proposal to allow renewable energy generators to supply directly without a licence and the capping of open access charges will set off a scramble for consumers.

Even now, rooftop solar is the fastest growing asset category, where self or third-party owned facilities supply a part of the consumer’s demand. The final endorsement of this move towards directly serving the consumers will come over time, with the separation of the distribution and supply businesses.
