Pilot Sites

India

Jharkand and Karnataka region


Together with the Indian partnership, RENAISSANCE has identified six sites for potential replication sites in India and will build a connection with MNRE for the Solar / Green Cities

Poor air quality and unreliable power supplies were identified as key issues in the International Energy Agency’s India Energy Outlook 2015 report. Furthermore, India is expected to surpass China in energy demand by 2040. To minimise the current dependency on fossil fuel consumption and increase the reliability and access to energy in both rural and urban environments, India is looking into setting up local energy systems that are more reliable, less pollutant and help reduce energy poverty in the country. By joining the RENAISSANCE project, the Indian partners are supporting a cheaper and more sustainable energy market.
