The Indian power market: vision for 2030
Over the past decade, the Indian power sector has been transformed.
Grid areas have been connected to form the world’s largest synchronously connected system; the reliability of the power system has been improved while serving rapid growth in demand; and there has been a wave of investment in generation capacity, underpinned by long term PPAs.
With an ambition of 175GW of wind and solar by 2022 and the promise of keeping the lights on for everyone, the Indian power sector is not just growing – it’s evolving.
Join us as we take a look at India’s changing power mix, consider the centralised vs decentralised market design debate, and explore our vision of what a renewable-led market design could look like.
In a webinar on 23 July 2020, Shweta Jadhav discussed the Indian power sector’s journey from the past decade to the country’s ambition for 2030. Stephen Woodhouse then presented AFRY’s vision for the Indian power market, drawing on his extensive experience of international markets and the roadmap provided by India’s Ministry of Power.
