India

India has experienced a significant economic growth in recent decades which influences the country’s electricity demand. The electricity demand has grown by more than 6% per year for the last decade and is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.

The Government of India (GoI) is therefore planning additional generation capacity to meet the growing electricity demand. The current electricity generation capacity exceeds 350 GW, but large expansions are required.

There are four key objectives of the Indian energy policy:

  • Access at affordable prices
  • Improved security and Independence
  • Greater Sustainability
  • Economic Growth.

To meet some of these objectives the GoI policies aim at 175 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022 and with a long-term goal of 450 GW.

Energy planning is required to ensure cost effectiveness while expanding the generation fleet. For this purpose, high-quality modelling of the energy sector is necessary and can be a key contributor in assessing the appropriate steps in planning of generation capacity to meet the growing demand, while transitioning towards a greener energy sector.

Under the Green Strategic Partnership between India and Denmark, an action plan for the Indo-Danish Energy Partnership Programme (INDEP) has been developed in close collaboration with Indian Institutions (e.g. CEA, POSOCO, CERC) under the Ministry of Power, India and the Danish Energy Agency (DEA). To support these initiatives DEA has agreed to exchange knowledge on topics within technology development and power system planning and modelling. Ea Energy Analyses is the international consultant for some of the projects under this programme.
