Synopsis: India’s National Tariff Policy mandates that power distribution companies (DISCOMs) purchase renewable energy (RE) to meet their renewable purchase obligation (RPO) targets. Procurement of RE, which is less predictable and variable by nature, requires systems to tackle the variability and intermittency of RE power supply and prevent demand-supply mismatches in the grid.
Synopsis: India’s power sector is witnessing a slew of reforms aimed at shaping a robust energy landscape for the country. Real-time management of demand-supply variation — to better respond to energy requirements and to enable large-scale integration of renewable energy (RE) — is a key focus area.
Synopsis: USAID/India‘s Greening the Grid (GTG) – Renewable Integration and Sustainable Energy (RISE) initiative (referred to as ―RISE‖ hereafter), focuses primarily on implementing a set of innovative pilots, which are multiimplementer work programs aimed at testing and evaluating building blocks to improve the integration of high levels of renewable energy (RE) in India‘s state and national power grids. AGC pilot discussed in this paper is one among the pilots proposed under RISE initiative.
Synopsis: The GTG program combined four intertwined components, led by specialized partners, to validate the key building blocks of grid flexibility and inter-state power trade and create enabling conditions to scale.
Synopsis: One third of India’s coal based power generation capacity should be made ready for flexible generation and dynamic simulation models could play a key role. The study reports supported by USAID & IGEF are pre-cursor to ascertain flexible operations for many of these units.
Synopsis: India’s transforming energy landscape, with its emphasis on renewable energy (RE), holds manifold promises for the country’s enhanced energy security, reduced oil imports, and improved air quality.
Synopsis: United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Greening the Grid-Renewable Integration and Sustainable Energy (GTG-RISE) initiative, the central component of Greening the Grid (GTG) program, is a bilateral program with the Ministry of Power, Government of India, under the U.S.-India Strategic Clean Energy Partnership (SCEP).

Synopsis: The Government of India is working to deploy unprecedented levels of renewable energy (RE) on its power grid. Getting a large quantum of RE on the gird will allow India to greatly reduce its economy’s carbon intensity and substantially strengthen the country’s energy security.
Synopsis: Renewable energy (RE) generation in India has been on a steady rise. Ensuring the power system’s reliability in the face of increased RE penetration is critical
