Demonstration of Web Portal for RPO Monitoring and Compliance
TERI, in conjunction with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), has developed a web portal for monitoring and compliance of Renewable Purchase obligation (RPO) in the country. In this context, TERI organized an interactive work session on demonstration of the web-based portal for stakeholders to accelerate grid-connected RE capacity addition in India, on June 28, 2017, at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
Various stakeholders including Electricity Regulatory Commissions (ERCs), DISCOMs, State Load Dispatch Centres (SLDCs), State Nodal Agencies (SNAs), Energy Exchanges, Captive Power Producers, energy think tanks and research institutions from across the country participated in the workshop.
The objective of the demonstration of the portal was to align and collate compliance data, and to implement it at the national level. The success of the proposed mechanism will depend on the adoption of precise definition of the roles and responsibilities of the institutions, as well as adoption of the appropriate governance structures and capacity building to undertake defined roles and responsibilities. It intends to create a common portal for filing and compiling information for all the obligated entities and their percentage of solar RPO compliance.
