  • India has an ambitious renewable energy target of 175 GW by 2022. However, installing a large renewable energy capacity has its own set of problems, evacuation and grid integration being the key among these.
  • The intermittency of renewables and grid integration challenges underscore the heightened risk of curtailment, in terms of technical issues and misalignment with demand-supply forecast. There have already been instances in some states, where solar and wind power plants have been asked to restrict generation, resulting in financial losses to developers.
  • On the project development front, transmission connectivity constraints are leading to an increasing number of tendering and project development delays, as well as downsizing of tenders. Meanwhile, anticipating the challenges in integrating intermittent renewables into the grid, a number of states have proposed deviation charges.
  • All these problems will only get aggravated with the increase in the quantum of renewable power available for grid injection. In order to address these challenges, a comprehensive plan covering transmission and control infrastructure was identified as a part of Green Energy Corridors. This programme includes an intra-state and an interstate transmission system to strengthen the infrastructure, and establishment of renewable energy management centres at the state, regional, and national load dispatch centre levels. But the progress has not been up to the mark.
  • The mismatch between the number of demand centres and the available corridors is a major concern. The distance between the demand and supply centres is also a key issue with six states in the western and southern parts accounting for 80 per cent of the country’s installed solar power capacity but only 38 per cent of the power demand.
  • Moreover, the interstate transmission corridor being developed by Power Grid Corporation of India Limited will help only if supplemented by the efforts of state transmission utilities to develop and strengthen their transmission infrastructure. While some states have been taking significant interest in upscaling and modernising their grids, most of them need to step up their efforts.
  • The aforementioned challenges can, however, be overcome with modern technological breakthroughs and advancements like smart grids, renewable energy storage solutions and renewable energy hybrids. Further, immediate attention is needed towards effective planning and implementation of longer-term network infrastructure. The scheduling and despatch between states and regions must be coordinated on priority. Finally, it is imperative to equip states with state-of-the-art renewable energy forecasting tools.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the trends, developments, plans and opportunities in the renewable energy transmission space in India. The conference will highlight the grid integration and evacuation-related challenges facing the renewable energy sector, and the possible solutions and ongoing initiatives to address these. It will also showcase the relevant technologies and noteworthy projects.
