Lucy Heintz, Partner and Head of Energy Infrastructure at Actis, commented:

“India has possibly one of the most ambitious net-zero plans globally. It needs to double its energy generation capacity and the government has decided that renewable energy is the solution because it is so cost competitive. It is starting to think about how to solve the intermittency problem in the way it structures PPAs, and it is creating incentives for areas such as green hydrogen and grid-banking renewable energy.

“We have to focus on efficiency because so much of our energy is lost in grids and distribution networks before it is even consumed.

“If you have a concerted effort at all levels – from individuals to companies to governments and global stakeholders – that can really move the needle.”
