There are other technical reasons why the Indian grid is weak, including lack of ancillary services (systems designed to keep the grid stable, instead of just pricing kilowatt-hours), and even a lack of time-of-day pricing for bulk procurement of power. There is another dimension, one that impacts policies – the role of the state-level distribution utilities (which are the real decision-makers when it comes to renewables).

They will certainly grow, especially because of support mechanisms (for more background information, see my chapter on Renewables in India, commissioned for the Economist Intelligence Unit’s special report on Energy in India).

NPCIL was created in September 1987 as public limited company under the Companies Act 1956. India is different because its grid is very weak and unstable, and instead of having a reasonable reserve margin (typically 15-20 percent in the west), there is a shortfall in the grid, officially in the range of 5 percent or so, but actually much higher.
He is also an adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon University, and technical advisor for the Government of India’s Smart Grid Task Force.
Department of Public Enterprise, Government of India recently conferred prestigious Miniratna status to it. Solar does not contribute in the evening, which is when India’s peak demand occurs (driven by lots of small residential and commercial users).
Thus, even if India adds 20 GW of solar, it still needs 20 GW of additional capacity to meet its peak, and the picture is almost as bad for wind because of its strong seasonality.
