Getting India Off the Coal Wagon

Ranjit Deshmukh
India, with one of the fastest growths in energy demand and emissions, and some of the most ambitious renewable energy targets in the world, is in the midst of an enormous energy transition. In this presentation, Ranjit will share results from sections of his dissertation on analyzing India’s future low carbon electricity system. Using a first-of-its-kind model of India’s system, Ranjit quantified the economic and environmental impacts of India’s renewable energy targets for 2022, and evaluated strategies to improve those impacts. In addition, he explored how the cost and value of renewable energy to the overall electricity system is likely to change in 2030 with different penetration and shares of wind and solar. These results have important implications for India’s policies and regulations.
