     Off-grid PV   7
The solution ?




Distributed Power Generation




           Off-grid PV         8
Why Rooftop PV?
•   Reduced reliance on the grid

•   Offsetting the usage of diesel generators, leading to lower pollution

•   Max power generation at max load(for commercial segment)

•   Consumption at the point of generation

•   Significantly reduced transmission losses.
     –   The Aggregated Technical and Commercial (ATC) losses in India are expected to be about 32%.
     –   1 kWh of power lost for every 3 kWh generated, which means 2 kWh of power from rooftop = 3
         kWh of kWh from far-off thermal plant


•   Operation and Maintenance – Easy and inexpensive


                                              Off-grid PV                                              9
Off-grid or grid-tied PV?

  Parameters                  Off-grid                                      Grid-tied


Grid           Operates independent of the utility         Connected to the utility power grid
connection     power grid
Suitability    Suitable when utility power is not          Used when selling power to utility or
               easily accessible or cannot be              the system smaller than the minimum
               installed                                   power load.
Storage        Yes                                         No
required
Cost           Costlier– due to battery bank               Less expensive

Installation   Easy to commission                          Complex – restricted by the utility grid
Monitoring     Important, but not critical                 Requires grid related monitoring,
                                                           feedback and safety features



                                             Off-grid PV                                              10
Why off-grid PV?

• No uncertainty about Feed-in-Tariff

• No off-taker risk(PPA risk) – losses of utilities at 88,170 Crores

• No need for net-metering

• System not dependent on the uptime of the grid

• Does not lead to destabilisation of the grid

• Ideal for non-electrified villages

Intersolar rooftop PV

  • 1. Off-grid Rooftop PV – An elegant alternative to the unreliable central grid November 6, 2012 Mumbai, India
  • 2. Agenda 1. Overview 2. Rooftop PV – hope or hype? 3. Challenges 4. Takeaways Off-grid PV 2
  • 3. India – Staring Into Darkness Generation Transmission Distribution - Power deficit – more than 9% - One nation, on grid – not yet - Net loss of utilities – INR 88,170 achieved Crores(~$17 Billion) - Capacity addition shortfall for 11th Plan Period – 26 GW - Transmission and Distribution osses – 27 % + - Power cuts of 50%+ - Capacity addition required for -12th plan(2012-17)– 76 GW - Majority of villages have no - 13th plan (2018-2) – 93 GW access to reliable and quality power Sources: Planning Commission of India, KPMG Off-grid PV 3
  • 4. A window to the future.. Off-grid PV 4
  • 5. Economic and environmental impact– Grim!! Off-grid PV 5
  • 6. July 30-31, 2012 The World’s Biggest Blackout happens in India Affects 620 million people
  • 7. World notices.. Off-grid PV 7
  • 8. The solution ? Distributed Power Generation Off-grid PV 8
  • 9. Why Rooftop PV? • Reduced reliance on the grid • Offsetting the usage of diesel generators, leading to lower pollution • Max power generation at max load(for commercial segment) • Consumption at the point of generation • Significantly reduced transmission losses. – The Aggregated Technical and Commercial (ATC) losses in India are expected to be about 32%. – 1 kWh of power lost for every 3 kWh generated, which means 2 kWh of power from rooftop = 3 kWh of kWh from far-off thermal plant • Operation and Maintenance – Easy and inexpensive Off-grid PV 9
  • 10. Off-grid or grid-tied PV? Parameters Off-grid Grid-tied Grid Operates independent of the utility Connected to the utility power grid connection power grid Suitability Suitable when utility power is not Used when selling power to utility or easily accessible or cannot be the system smaller than the minimum installed power load. Storage Yes No required Cost Costlier– due to battery bank Less expensive Installation Easy to commission Complex – restricted by the utility grid Monitoring Important, but not critical Requires grid related monitoring, feedback and safety features Off-grid PV 10
  • 11. Why off-grid PV? • No uncertainty about Feed-in-Tariff • No off-taker risk(PPA risk) – losses of utilities at 88,170 Crores • No need for net-metering • System not dependent on the uptime of the grid • Does not lead to destabilisation of the grid • Ideal for non-electrified villages Off-grid PV 11
  • 12. Agenda 1. Overview 2. Rooftop PV – hope or hype? 3. Challenges 4. Takeaways Off-grid PV 12
  • 13. Rooftop PV market – Does it exist? Rooftop PV Market Pillar 1 Pillar 2 Pillar 3 Policy/Regul Financial Technical atory support Viability Feasibility The Foundation - Demand Potential Off-grid PV 13
  • 14. The Foundation - Rooftop Potential KPMG’s report – “The Rising Sun – 2012” Estimate of potential – 4 GW by 2016-17 Approach – Demand side economics Grid parity - 2015-16 Favourable trends for rooftop PV - Increase in power tariffs in many states - Transmission and Distribution losses of about 20%, which can be avoided by rooftop PV - Target achievable subject to creation of enabling environment by regulators and utilities Off-grid PV 14
  • 15. Grid parity for rooftop PV by 2015-16 Source : KPMG Assumptions a. Landed cost for consumer – 5.5 Rs/kWh in 2011-12 b. Electricity price increase – 4%-5.5% per annum c. Solar price decline – 5%-7% per annum Off-grid PV 15
