FEATURED RESEARCH

RE+: Renewables Beyond Electricity

Solar

CEEW and WWF India jointly produced a report “RE+: Renewables Beyond Electricity”, which is a compendium of innovative renewable energy applications (beyond electricity generation) which can be utilised for diverse societal needs. The 14 renewable energy applications documented in this report cover four renewable energy sources —biomass, wind, geothermal, and solar energy. The report documents a wide variety of renewable energy applications and technologies from different parts of the country which can be used for heating, cooling, cooking and mechanical energy.

Results-Based Financing for Off-grid Energy Access in India

Solar

The fundamental idea of Results-Based Financing (RBF) approaches is that payments that would otherwise be made automatically are made contingent on delivery of (a) preagreed result(s), with achievement of the results being subject to independent verification. As RBF approaches become an increasingly popular way to support development objectives, CEEW uses the analytical framework to suggest how 1) the deployment of solar water heating systems in urban residential buildings in India can be increased. and 2) the extent to which RBFs could support innovation across the energy access supply chain can be increased. These case studies will eventually be published as part of a longer report (hereinafter referred to as the “main report”) on Results-Based Financing (RBF) prepared for the World Bank-administered Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP).

ONGOING RESEARCH
  • Research on Scaling ‘Solar India’ by Unleashing Clean Job Opportunities and Deploying Financial Solutions. CEEW in association with NRDC, and supported by Shakti Foundation is working on a project to estimate the jobs created in the solar and wind energy sector. As part of the project we  would also be conducting a series of roundtables on the financing opportunities and challenges for solar energy in India. To gauge the views of the developers the first roundtable was organised on 31st October in New Delhi. The roundtable issue brief is available here. The roundtable minutes are available here.
