India Clean Cooking Forum 2018 – Key Messages

Dec 2018

Over the last three years, clean cooking energy provision has centred around LPG expansion. A National Mission on Clean Cooking (NMCC) proposed by NITI Aayog is a welcome move. Given India’s mammoth and diverse Clean Cooking Energy (CCE) needs, CLEAN believes that the Mission must explore a range of CCE options, including those based on renewable energy. ICCF 2018 shed light on pathways to optimal integration of RE-based options in India’s CCE strategy.

A detailed Manual on Lead Acid Battery Operation & Maintenance for Solar PV Plants

Oct 2018

In India over 14,000 Micro/Mini grids (DC and AC) are under operation. These micro and mini grids are
complementing the efforts of Government of India’s ambitious target of providing 24/7 access to
electricity to every Indian citizen by 2022. Micro/mini grids entrepreneurs are deploying innovative offgrid solutions that are powered by renewable energy to provide energy access for all. All these plants have solar PV capacity generally in range of 250 W to 100 kW with battery backup for providing backup for almost couple of hours to over twelve hours.

Portable Micro Inverter of 150 W for Rural Applications

Oct 2018

In India, inverters are mostly available in 650 VA. Even the inverters of lesser capacities that are available, they retain the same size and specifications of 650 VA inverter, with the exception that power is limited to lesser capacity. Most people in rural households need power up to 100–150 W (watts) for lighting and television requirements, which could be met with 150 VA of inverter with 60 Watt solar panel While, these users are left with no choice but to buy inverters of 650 VA capacities of power rating, which require 60Ah of battery and 60 watts of solar panels. All of this lead additional cost on inverter, batteries and solar panels so as to match the specifications of the inverter.

Findings from the workshop on energy and agriculture for smart villages in India

Sep 2018

Agriculture continues to be central to the lives and economies of rural communities in India. Many of those communities have little or no access to modern energy services. These realities motivated the holding of the workshop “Energy and agriculture for smart villages in India” in September 2016 at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Patancheru, Telangana, India.

Access to Clean Cooking Energy in India

Sep 2017

Access to clean cooking energy is not solely an energy access issue.  Given that traditional cooking methods disproportionately impact women in terms of drudgery, adverse health outcomes, and lost opportunity cost of time, it is imperative to include them in the design and execution of solutions.

Deployment of Decentralised Renewable Energy Solutions

Jan 2016

More than 80 million households across India — nearly 50 per cent of the country’s population- have little or no access to grid-based electricity and rely on kerosene as their primary source for lighting (IFC, 2015). Nearly double that number continue to use firewood and biomass for cooking. Expenditure on fuel and light by the urban and rural poor is the third highest expenditure after food and health, to the extent that poorer households spend up to 20 per cent of their income on energy.

In development discourse in India, household energy access is measured by household’s primary source of lighting and cooking, or through electrification status of household.

Technology and Quality Assurance for Off-grid Clean Energy

Jul 2015

This study looks at the technology related issues of CLEAN energy practitioners in India, based on consultation with 25 different organisations. It aims to identify key technology barriers that are limiting the ability of practitioners in India from extending energy access to unserved and underserved communities. After identifying these issues then possible interventions are presented, along with a discussion on how CLEAN could take these forward.

Towards Scaling up of Electricity Access

Apr 2015

The Sustainable Energy for All initiative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) in 2012 has crystallized the global attention on the energy access challenge. It is estimated that about 1.3 billion people in the world in 2012 did not have access to electricity and 2.6 billion did not have access to clean cooking energies (WEO 2014).
