Decentralized Renewable Energy Interventions in India as Eco-Innovations: Forms and Drivers
Presenter: Gopal K Sarangi and Arabinda Mishra
| Decarbonizing the electricity sector has received heightened attention worldwide amidst growing concerns of climate change. Towards reaching this end, numerous clean energy innovations have been attempted across countries that increasingly emphasized on various renewable energy technologies. Of late decentralised renewable energy interventions have caught the attention of policy makers and private sector players in significant ways due to multiple benefits associated with these systems, importantly as a form of eco-innovation. In this backdrop, the paper lays thrust on mapping and analyzing key driving forces for the promotion of decentralsied energy systems as ecoinnovation and how these systems have led further innovations in the form of eco-behavioural changes in India The analytical contours of the paper draws from secondary data sources as well as from case study analysis.
