According to Niti Aayog, the demand for energy in India is set to grow from the current level of 5,311 TWh to 18,635 TWh by 2047, an increment of 3.5 times. As demand for energy observes an unprecedented increase, it becomes pertinent to explore novel sources of energy, such as distributed renewable energy systems (DRES). These new sources of energy accord an opportunity for generation to be no longer limited to centralised sources only, thus presenting a unique pivot in the context of two essential public goals — the transition to renewables and attainment of inclusive and resilient electrification.
