Energy Alternative India

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