  • 3. India’s current electricity production
    Installed capacity: Approx 150 GW
    Primarily based on coal (52%) & large hydro (27%)
    Wind (7%) is the largest alternative energy component
    Total non-hydro renewable energy is only about 8% of total
  • 4. Future electricity requirements
    Could require 350 GW by 2017 (McKinsey)
    Where does the additional 200 GW come from?
    From fossil fuels (coal, natural gas) and
  • 5. Renewable Energy
  • TODAY, India has abundant renewable energy resources, BUT…
    • Renewable resources are costly
    • 11. Renewable resources are distributed
    • 12. Renewable resources are intermittent
  • Better Storage = Better RE
    • Better energy storagehigher reliability
    • 13. Better energy storage lower costs
    • 14. Better energy storage distributed electricity generation
  • So, what’s the catch?
    • Energy storage is costly (could increase energy production costs 100-300%!)
    • 15. Energy storage for utility-scale is still evolving
    • 16. Renewable energy is just starting off (less than 3% of total)
  • But TOMORROW’s another day
    • Many off-grids & more distributed generation – demand side pull
    • 17. RE has scale – prompts investments and lowers costs
    • 18. Technological advancements – lowers storage costs
  • Tomorrow…
    Energy storage could be one of the biggest
    business opportunities
  • 19. “What’s in it for me?”
    • Indian market driven by strong economy, government mandates and incentives
    - Increasing need for electricity storage
    - 68000unelectrified villages
    - National Solar Mission (2 MW – 20000 MW in 12 years!)
    - National Village Electrification Programme
    - Investor friendly policies (100% FDI in renewables…)
  • 20. Technologies to watch out for
    Batteries – Lead acid, Li-ion, flow batteries, NaS
    Thermal energy storage – Solar CSP
    Fuel cells
    Pumped hydro
    Compressed air energy storage
    Superconducting magnetic energy storage
  • 21. Markets to watch out for
    Energy storage (Battery) requirements for:
    • Off-grid Solar PV market – rooftop solar
    • 22. Village electrification
    • 23. Commercial demand for replacing DG sets
    • 24. Solar-based products – lanterns, lamps and more
    • 25. Indian cellular tower industry
  • Opportunities for small and large companies
    For small companies
    Value added reseller of solar products & modules
    Manufacturing solar-based products on small-scale
    For medium and large companies
    Tie-ups with large panel and solar product manufacturers
    Entering new battery tech such as flow batteries & NaS
  • 26. Opportunities for partnerships
    Joint ventures & research partnerships
    New technologies and applications
    Value added resellers
    Specific industries (cellular) / markets (local villages)
    OEM partnerships
    solar modules manufacturers/solar product suppliers
  • 27. Opportunities from innovations
    New markets - Non-consumers becoming consumers, grid-connected power generation segment
    New sources - Use in emerging renewable energy sources such as tidal, wave & geothermal
    New products – Use of RE for new products that have critical need for batteries
  • 28. “What should I do?”
    Secondary research – read up more on your target segment
    Primary research – talk to the market
    Foot in the door – get your hands dirty at least cost
  • 29. All the best!
