One Sun, One World, One Grid (OSOWOG) initiative

India’s mega plan of "One Sun, One World, One Grid" (OSOWOG) — a trans-national electricity grid supplying solar power across the globe. The idea was first floated by Modi in 2018 during the first assembly of International Solar Alliance (ISA). Policy experts describe it as part of India’s answer to China’s “One Belt One Road” project.

According to the draft plan of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), the ambitious OSOWOG will connect 140 countries through a common grid that will be used to transfer solar power.

India to have 60% power capacity from renewable energy by 2030

India can integrate more than 30% of wind and solar in its power system, while still maintaining security of supply and without raising the total economic costs of its electricity system, according to a new report by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). The report also identifies a number of strategies to achieve this. The report, titled ‘Renewable Power Pathways: Modelling the Integration of Wind and Solar in India by 2030’, was launched with the report titled ‘Bending the Curve: 2025 Forecasts for Electricity Demand by Sector and State in the Light of the COVID Epidemic’.

Power minister launches pan-India real-time market in electricity

Power and renewable energy minister launched the pan-India real-time market (RTM) in electricity, placing India amongst a few electricity markets in the world having it. RTM is an organized market platform to enable the buyers and sellers pan-India to meet their energy requirement closer to real time of operation.  RTM would bring required flexibility in the market to provide real-time balance while ensuring optimal utilisation of the available surplus capacity in the system and would also help manage demand pattern diversity in the country with an organized market.

India sees narrowing gap between clean energy, coal power

India has achieved an unexpected benefit on the energy front during this Covid-19 pandemic phase. The gap between the share of renewables and coal-fired power in India’s electricity generation sector has narrowed more than ever before. The share of renewables increased from 17 % just before the pandemic to almost 24 % and coal-fired power declined from 76 % to 66 %,” said energy analysts of International Energy Agency (IEA) in their note on India’s energy sector. IEA is of the view that the clean energy transition is good, both for the economy and the environment of India, the world’s third-largest energy consumer.
