Prayas has been analyzing the different policy mechanisms that have been adopted to promote RE development – feed-in or preferential tariffs, renewable power purchase obligations and renewable energy certificates. In 2010, the Central government of India began to push for large-scale solar power development through the National Solar Mission by setting a target of 22 GW by 2022. Although the bulk of the subsidy and targets are for grid-connected solar, it is robust decentralized RE solutions that can make a large social impact by providing access to clean energy to the poor till reliable grid electricity is made available. Prayas has been providing critiques of the policies under the National Solar Mission, for both grid-connected and off-grid solar development.
