'Flexible' power system key to renewables push

The drop in renewable energy tariffs in India is one of the true success stories of the last few years. From around Rs 10-12/kWh in 2010, solar tariffs have come down to Rs 2.5-3/kWh. Wind tariffs have fallen from Rs 4.5-5/kWh to a similar range as solar. There is no longer any doubt that renewables are cheaper than new coal, and indeed cheaper than large shares of the existing coal fleet. India stands before the real prospect of being the first country in history to power its development through an early leap into renewables.

We can make the best use of low-cost renewable electricity if we can simultaneously create a market, which enables price discovery, for capacity availability. It would bring out the efficient coal power plans today or storage capacity, such as batteries, tomorrow. There is a need for multi-stakeholder engagement that will discuss, debate and promote actions needed for the seamless integration of low-cost renewable electricity. The Energy Transitions Commission is a step in this direction. As can be expected, there are many actions that are needed.
