Renewable cheaper than coal power: How far ahead can we go?

Aug 19: As of June 2019, India had installed 82GW of renewable energy (including ~2GW of behind-the-meter rooftop solar capacity).
8Of the 21GW of renewable capacity installed since the beginning of FY2017/18 and an additional 35GW awarded to date, more than 90% of it has been contracted for tariffs between Rs2.43-2.80/kilowatt hour (kWh) with zero indexation for 25 years.
8This is 20-30% less than average domestic coal-sourced thermal tariffs from India's largest energy conglomerate NTPC, of Rs3.38/kWh.
8But while the renewable energy sector is poised for growth, there are still hurdles to cross

EV sales in India: Slow start likely

Aug 19: An international study has made an estimate of electric vehicle offtake as a percentage of total vehicle sale in India.
8Sales are going to be impacted by petrol prices and vehicle price tags
8But the point to note is that the uptake ratios are much lower than advanced countries
8It reaches a 50% mark only by 2050, it seems
8This is a useful study for teams within oil marketing companies, trying to assess how demand for vehicle fuels will move going ahead

Renewal vs. gas-based power: US is the real battleground

Aug 19: Nowhere is the battle between renewable power and gas-based power more evident than in the US
8For the first time, despite low gas prices, both wind and solar PPA prices are now below the projected cost of burning natural gas in existing gas-fired combined cycle units.
8But this takes into account federal tax credits given to solar and wind.
8Another interesting trend is that the once-wide gap between wind and solar PPA prices has narrowed considerably in recent years, as solar prices have fallen more rapidly than wind prices.
8In India, which is dependent on expensive LNG, gas fired power is in no position to compete with renewable energy.
8Will the scenario change, when gas volumes rise from the KG Basin discoveries of ONGC and RIL? Gas prices from these discoveries will be aligned to the imported price of LNG, which means that gas prices will continue to remain high

Adani's coal mine in Australia: Attack continues

Aug 19: Adani Mining Pty Ltd has negative tangible assets, zero income, and two billion Australian dollars in existing liabilities, according to research put out by an international agency.
8Adani Enterprises Ltd (AEL), as the financial backer, does not currently have the financial capacity to deliver on the Carmichael mine and rail infrastructure project absent a multi-billion-dollar equity and/or debt raising, particularly in light of a large number of competing major Indian project proposals being pursued by Adani Enterprises Ltd.
8A maze of Adani companies control Adani Mining Pty Ltd. The companies are so structured to evade direct scrutiny under Australian law, it is alleged.
