Re-energizing Maharashtra: an assessment of renewable energy policies, challenges and opportunities

The purpose of the study is to present a detailed overview of the status of renewable energy in Maharashtra and to identify the key barriers and challenges to the growth of RE in the state. The study has been carried through analysis of secondary sources of information and engagement with key experts and stakeholders representing industry, Government, research and policy think tanks etc. to get their views and recommendations. The present study does not include the transport energy scenario of the state and the potential renewable options in the sector such as electric vehicles, non-motorized transport, water transport etc. However, feel that such study is equally needed in the wake of huge fuel import burden on the state.
