Energy Sale Business:

The Company's renewable energy generation business has passed through a difficult time for the last 2 years. The wind mills couldn't run to its full potential due to problems in evacuation of power. However, the Government is now in the process of formulating separate policies for the renewable energy sector. The Company is hopeful of revival of the renewable energy sector. The Company sold 62.24 million units of energy (power) during 2014–15, earning revenue of 2103.48 lakhs. To stabilise the energy sale business, the Company is considering the proposal to enter into Group Captive Schemes.

Outlook & Opportunities

One of the most critical components of infrastructure is power or electricity which affects the economic growth and well–being of any nation. Sustainable growth of any Country including India depends upon existence and development of adequate infrastructure. The power sector in India is most diversified because of the various sources of power generation ranging from conventional ones such as coal, lignite, natural gas, oil, hydro and nuclear power to other viable non–conventional sources such as wind, solar, and agriculture and domestic waste. There is a huge gap between the demand and generation of electricity in India and the gap is narrowing day by day.

The Indian power sector is undergoing a significant change that is redefining the industry outlook. Sustained economic growth continues to drive demand for power in India. The Government of India's promise to provide 24x7 power to all has accelerated capacity addition in the country. At the same time, the competitive intensity is increasing on both market side as well as supply side (fuel, logistics, finances and manpower).

Further, the storage technologies are gaining recognition as the key to address the key priorities of policy makers such as smart cities, renewable integration and energy access. Government of India has announced series of initiatives in past 6 months like enhancing the target for

National Solar Mission, accelerating wind energy adoption, Deendayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyori Yojana, 100 Smart Cities and 1000 microgrids and creation of National Standing Committee on Energy Storage and Hybrid systems by Ministry of New and Renewable Energy that have a direct impact on opportunities for this sector. MNRE is currently working on the policy framework to launch "National Energy Storage Mission" later this year. "Make in India" campaign of Indian Government has introduced series of incentives that are resulting in interest from global leaders on setting up or expanding existing manufacturing in India through partnerships with Indian Industry.

To achieve a sustainable growth, energy security is of paramount importance for which large scale integration of renewable generation shall play a prominent role. Renewable energy has the inherent advantage of greater resource flexibility of a distributed energy system. In this direction, transmission plays a central role to facilitate seamless flow of electricity in a reliable and affordable manner, increasing efficiency with the application of smart grid technologies. Towards this, the "Green Energy Corridor" is one of the most appreciable efforts as the renewable energy sector is coming into increasing focus in the context of climate change vis–a­vis concern on energy security.

Your Company has once again become the first one to participate in the Green Corridor Projects and bagged many prestigious Orders. If the initiatives taken by the present Government materialises on ground, your Company shall be benefitted the much and shall grow at a faster pace. Your Company has the capability and adequate preparedness to face the new developments and diversified challenges happening recently in the power sector.
