The Opportunity -Energy Access- More than 1.4 Billion people in the world have no access to electricity- Of this, 400 Million people live in India Distributed Power Generation 4
Multiple dimensions of energy access Social Economic Environment Distributed Power Generation 5
Multiple dimensions of energy access1. Social 2. Economic 3. Environmenta. Urban Vs. Rural : • Kerosene usage- $2 Billion • Emission of94% Vs. 57% per year in India(Source: CO, Co2, NoxiousElectrification of IFC) gaseshouseholds(2009) • Subsidy*– Rs. 27,352 Crores • Loss of forest coverb. Gender – Women mostlyaffected and vegetation • Loss of productivityc. Health and Safety- Respiratory diseases • Poor pay higher cost per- Eye impairment unit of electricity- Fire hazards * OMC Under-recovery(2011-12) The Opportunity lies in profitably serving this underserved market Distributed Power Generation 6
Distributed power generation and sale- Power Generation at the point of consumption- Renewables(Solar, Biomass, Wind, Small Hydro)- Innovative technology and business models- Tap the Bottom of the Pyramid market Distributed Power Generation 8
