The Government of India has ambitious plans to scale up renewable energy, and stakeholders are deliberating cost-effective ways to integrate a largeever increasing quantum of renewables with the power system. A challenge being faced today is the lack of robust data on renewable energy, which confines limits the understanding ability of stakeholders to explore develop solutions. The current data regime is weak because of which it is difficult to gather obtain information on major trends and growth trajectories, market outlook, bottlenecks to deployment and procurement of renewable energy. This initiative attempts to bridge this gap by compiling robust and accurate data on renewable energy from multiple sources and disseminating it through a comprehensive web-based portal, “All About Renewables”. Data from this portal has been assimilated into a special report to present an annual review of India’s renewable energy sector.
