Decentralized Power Options Available in India


Are you looking to get energy security for your company through reduction in the use of diesel, furnace oil, LPG and costly grid power?

EAI can do a feasibility study for the use of solar PV & thermal, biomass for heat and power, waste heat recovery and energy efficiency to dramatically cut down fossil fuel use and reduce your energy bills. See EAI’s SURE-FIRE offering for more.


 World over, while centralised power generation capacity is being enhanced, there is significant emphasis on enhancing the decentralized power generation options as well.

The reasons for this are not far to seek. Decentralized power, usually through renewable energy sources, are more sustainable and environment friendly.

For countries like India with significant grid losses, using decentralized power generation options also make the entire generation and transmission far more efficient.

How are the various decentralized power options growing and faring in India? This blog post will discuss this topic in detail.

More often than not, decentralized power will imply use of renewable power sources. Of course, one could also use diesel gensets of mini coal based/natural gas based power plants for decentralized power, but with the prices of both these fossil fuels increasing all the time and their availability (especially of coal) becoming a question mark, most companies are exploring renewable sources when it comes to decentralized power.

The following are the renewable power sources suitable for decentralised power generation:

  • Solar PV
  • Biomass
  • Industrial & Other Organic Waste
  • Solar CSP & Wind Power, in select cases

Interested in understanding further how to use decentralized and sustainable power options for your company?

EAI has a dedicated division SURE-FIRE that can provide a blueprint for using sustainable/renewable energy resources to reduce your eneryg bills and to decrease the use of fossil fuels such as furnace oil, LPG or diesel consumption for your company’s operations. Refer to the EAI SURE-FIRE section for details on how you can get a quick understanding of feasible avenues for your company.
