  • 8. What may be done: Banking of Renewable Energy  Inevitable for In-firm, unpredictable, uncertain generation  Must be allowed for units upto 10MW  Could be made optional, provided RE developers ready to pay a mutually agreed “Banking Charge” blessed by MERC  Differential energy between over-generated and under- consumed must be considered as “Deemed Banked unit”  Deemed Banked units must be paid to generators @ APPC by host DISCOM Harry Dhaul - Director General, IPPAI
