The Florence School of Regulation is pleased to host the launch of the book Renewable Energy in India: Economics and Market Dynamics.
The scope of renewable energy generation technologies has far exceeded that of a laboratory, as they now require large-scale commercial generation. With them relying heavily on policy support, contemporary debates in energy are grappling with how exactly renewable energy should be priced and integrated into market. This book, written from an economics perspective, critically examines the aspects of pricing, regulatory oversight and rules governing the market for electricity generation from intermittent renewable energy sources and associated green product. This book discusses various policy and regulatory initiatives for renewable power generation technologies in India by comparing them with similar measures in some leading countries of the world. It contextualizes the pricing of renewable energy and looks at market-determined renewable energy certificate (REC) mechanism. Finally, it seeks to advance scholarship on green energy and introspects on policy dilemma facing the renewable segment in India and explores the possibility of achieving a level playing field for renewable energy vis-à-vis traditional methods of power generation, through appropriate market mechanism.
