EVI helps Indian Railways design its Renewable Energy Procurement Strategy across 7 states

As lead consultant for renewable energy under USAID PACE-D TA program, EVI has developed a Renewable Energy (RE) Procurement Strategy for Indian Railways (IR) for traction and non-traction loads of IR across seven states. Indian Railways has defined its mission for agressive RE adoption.  Our solution incorporates the statewise policies and the additional complexity of Indian railway operations accross several states. We assisted IR in identifying the most feasible landed cost options for solar and wind procurement, considering interstate vs intrastate transmission costs, and renewable purchase obligations. We have also devised a procurement strategy for non-traction loads based on Rooftop and open access solutions. Our analysis indicated statewise savings possible for different procurement mixes of RE.
