Accelerate 175: A Roadmap to Accelerate Renewable Energy Adoption in Key Indian States

This project assesses the perspectives of various state-level stakeholders, identifies state-level barriers to renewable energy installation, and offers potential areas of collaboration for renewable energy cooperation

The project was made possible by our donor Rockefeller Foundation. It was an 8-month project from June 27, 2022 to February 28, 2023.


The project aimed to

  • employ a wide range of technical engagements to help states meet their own sub-targets without attracting harmful political attention.
  • help state governments improve regulation and governance by utilizing data tools to understand demand response, improve billing accuracy and more
  • share tools and practical experiences with states in demand forecasting to better match electricity generation and consumer use
  • assist Indian states to build tools to improve weather forecasting,
  • provide weather forecasting to consider investments in renewable energy
