  • Access to Clean Cooking Energy and Electricity - Survey of States
  • Sector Access To Energy

    Year 2015

    Ensuring access to reliable energy is a major challenge faced by India today. So far, both government and non-government initiatives to meet electricity and non-electricity energy needs in rural India have had a limited impact, especially in relation to quality, quantity and affordability of services. Policy and decision-makers in the Government are needed to be informed about the performance of existing energy delivery mechanisms so that are able to take corrective action. With this in mind, Shakti has supported an initiative for developing energy access indicators for six energy-deprived states of the country. Outputs of this initiative will support the Government to design better policies and programs for energy deprived consumers.

    India has around 18 million grid connected and 7 million diesel-operated irrigation pumps. The grid based pumps consume nearly 20% of electricity which require 85 million tons of coal on an annual basis. The diesel based irrigation pumps consume 4 billion litres of diesel per annum. To be able to support the needs of the agriculture sector while simultaneously reducing its dependence on conventional energy sources like diesel and grid electricity, it is essential to explore and promote alternative energy sources for irrigation application. Solar photovoltaic (SPV) powered pumps can serve this purpose.

  • Briefing Paper Series on Sustainable Energy and Rural Energy Access 2014-2015
  • Sector Access To Energy

    Grantee Ashden India Renewable Energy Collective

    Grantee base All India

    Year 2014

    Research on decentralized renewable energy (DRE) has lacked perspective from practitioners. Under this initiative, rural energy practitioners have systematically identified critical themes relevant to DRE in India. Each theme is presented in the form of a briefing paper. Shakti has collaborated with Ashden India Renewable Energy Collective (AIREC) – a group of grassroots project implementation agencies, individuals and winners of the prestigious Ashden awards (distinguished contributors to rural energy access) - to prepare the briefing papers. All papers in the series are essentially thinking and working papers. Readers are welcome to provide feedback, which will help inform and also shape future strategies.

  • Policy and Regulatory Interventions to support community level off grid projects

    Grantee base All India

    Year 2011

    "This is a study on policy and regulatory interventions needed to support rural off-grid community electrification projects in India. The study articulates two models for the promotion of off-grid electrification in India - Off-grid distributed generation based distribution franchise model (ODGBDF) and the renewable energy certificate (REC) model. In the ODGBDF model the project developer shall provide electricity to consumer and receive tariff. DISCOMs will provide feed-in-tariff to project developer and receive financial assistance from the Government of India. In the REC model, project developer gets sufficient benefit from sale of electricity to the consumer and RECs are sold on the exchange to recover all the costs. The report however recommends the ODGBDF model. The study suggests drafting of model regulations for off-grid rural electrification. It also suggests that the Government of India should consider development of policy under which it can provide central financial assistance to DISCOMs for promoting off-grid rural electrification. This model provides the maximum certainty of revenue to the developer and proper integration of off-grid projects with grid as and when it is feasible"
