IPPs are playing an increasingly important role in bridging the power deficit in India. Private investment in the power sector has risen from no private participation in 1990 to nearly 30% of installed generating capacity by 2013.
Renewable energy IPPs form a very large part of this investment, and the sector will continue to grow backed by favourable government policies. This paper analyses the opportunities in RE power and the pitfalls that should be carefully concerned by RE IPPs who wish to maximise their return on investment.
