Getting uninterrupted electricity is likely to a Fundamental Right under the Umbrella legislation of the Indian Constitution Under Article 21, and to fulfill that Maximum Electricity Generation from Renewable Energy is the dire necessity. Research shows that the generation of electricity from Renewables was started in the late 1990s.
In India, Household Electricity demand was increased during last year, Due to lockdown in all states because of Covid-19 which mandated everyone to stay at home. Everything became online which requires electricity to run and to operate those appliances, even the demand for electricity consumption in the hospital also required a nonstop electricity supply to run medical equipment.
This demand we had fulfilled because big consumers are not using electricity at that time, what if there is partial lockdown where companies and big consumers are allowed to do production and all, then the story must be different, and, if any power grid failed just like in July 2012 at that time for any reason or any energy crisis occurs, then the number of dead persons would be more from that grid failure, crisis rather than Covid-19.
India is a country that is blessed with sun throughout the year, and that’s why we have to generate electricity through Solar more. This research emphasis on Renewable purchase obligation i.e., an initiative from which we can achieve our targets and the current status of RPO’s and their effectiveness in India, and how to maximize electricity generation from renewable energy can be made possible.
