Executive Summary Full Text

The objective of this study is to examine the possibility of increasing the share of renewables to 100% (or to as high as possible), to enable an appreciation of the role that renewables can play in India's energy future and assess the implications of such a dramatic change in the proposed energy mix. Based on the scenario approach using the MARKAL model, a BAU scenario would be compared with alternative scenarios representing increasing level of renewables.
