India Renewables Report

BMI View: Our view that power sector reforms would be a top priority for Modi's government is playing out and we have witnessed notable progress in India's renewables expansion. Investor interest in the market is high, the project pipeline continues to swell and rising power consumption and off-grid requirements will ensure the demand for renewable energy technologies remains high.

Modi is a strong supporter of renewable energy and the government - through the Ministry of New Renewable Energy - has scaled up India's 2022 renewables targets dramatically since the 2014 election. In particular, the ambition and high degree of government involvement in the solar sector is helping to drive growth and we view the solar segment as a clear outperformer across the power market. Key Trends And Developments

  • The Ministry of New Renewable Energy recently scaled up the country's renewable energy targets for 2022. The government now hopes to install 175 gigawatts (GW) of capacity by 2022 (up from an original 33.8GW), consisting of 100GW of solar power, 60GW of wind, 10GW of biomass and 500 megawatt (MW) of small-scale hydropower.

  • Spanish firm Gamesa announced in April 2015 that it has secured six orders for wind projects totalling 194MW in India. Gamesa will construct one 50MW wind farm in the state of Madhya Pradesh and another 108MW plant in the state of Gujarat as part of a turnkey contract with an unnamed local independent power producer. After commissioning them in July 2015 and February 2016, respectively, Gamesa will be responsible for maintaining them under long-term service contracts.

  • The budget allocation for FY2015/16 for the renewable energy sector has been reduced by nearly 6% when compared to the revised budget of the previous year (2014/2015) - if the 'Internal and Extra Budgetary Resources' is also included.

  • Following a series of talks between US President Obama and Modi in January 2015, there will be increased cooperation between the two countries...

BMI Industry Forecasts

Historic data series (2010-2012) and forecasts to end-2018 for electricity generation (TWh) and electricity generating capacity (MW) for each individual renewables sector present in the country.

These in turn are broken down into:

Electricity Generation: Overall capacity (TWh), growth % change year-on-year, KWh per capita, % of Total Non-Hydropower renewables generation, % of total electricity generation.

Electricity Capacity: Overall capacity (MW), growth % change year-on-year, % of non-hydroelectric renewables capacity and % of total capacity.

These forecasts are in turn supported by explicit assumptions, in conjunction with analysis of the key risks to the main forecast.
