Ⅳ. Press Release:

Indian electricity market in its quest for reliable and quality power supply for all is evolving rapidly. Government’s ambitious targets of adding 175 GW of renewable energy and heavy investment promise in expansion and upgradation of transmission and distribution network are leading to making of robust electricity market. Power Minister of India, Shri Piyush Goyal has said that the transmission and distribution (T&D) sector can expect private and government sector investments of nearly USD 50 billion over the next four years. Recently government of India launched National Smart Grid Mission (NSGM) with allocation of Rs.980 crore in 12th Plan.

Year 2015 is anticipated to kickoff grid scale advanced storage projects in India. PGCIL pilot projects are expected to start in this year and there are a number of other MW scale projects that are expected to get selected for applications such as diesel replacement, renewable integration and microgrids. The ‘Make in India’ Campaign will provide a boost to companies which are looking to establish their base & extend business in India.

Other applications like electric and hybrid vehicle are likely to be driven by initiatives like FAME India Scheme (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India). Under this scheme incentives are being rolled out for electric and hybrid vehicles. Target: 6-7 million electric vehicles on road by 2020.
