Expanding Buildings-to-Grid (B2G) Objectives in India
The goal of the study outlined in this report is to establish a sustainable B2G collaboration between the U.S. and India, which will facilitate integration of demand-side systems with supply-side systems to advance India’s electricity reliability goals. The study goal is to help spark development of demand response (DR) pilot studies in India that take lessons learned from similar experiences around the world. With integrated demand response and energy-efficiency action plans to help develop pilot studies and transformative technologies for mitigation and adaptation of electricity reliability, the study proposes a plan for B2G pilot studies. The report authors also hope that the findings aid Smart Grid market transformation and policy interventions.
Excerpt from the report:
The ISGF has prepared a Smart Grid roadmap for National Smart Grid Mission to foster Smart Grid development over three plan periods. The short-term and long-term activities of the ISGF that pertain to B2G project will be:
- improvement in power quality and reliability,
- deployment of a time-of- use tariff,
- development of open-information exchange platforms to be shared by all market participants in real-time, including “prosumers” (consumers who produce energy and participate in energy market), and
- design of policies for DR-ready appliances.
