The Future Direction of Indian Renewable Energy Policies

It is important for national policies in India to keep up with the maturing industry. Already a comprehensive renewable energy policy for all-round development of the sector has been formulated by the MNES. Policy measures aim at overall development and the promotion of renewable energy technologies and applications. Specifically, these will focus on policy initiatives encouraging private investment and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

The growth in demand for renewable energy has had profound implications on industry and has also led to a growth in international industrial partnerships in the renewable energy sector. A new thrust is being given to consolidate the progress made so far, by undertaking efforts to remove constraints and bottlenecks for accelerated utilization, and also to venture in new directions across the entire spectrum of rural energy, solar energy and power generation by using RETs.

Although the MNES has been supporting R&D for technology and human resources development in the renewable energy sector, the emphasis now is on cost reductions and increases in efficiency. It is intended that there be increased interaction and close cooperation between the the country's research and teaching institutions, which are reservoirs of knowledge and experience, and Indian industry, which has the requisite entrepreneurial skills and market orientation.
