As we are all aware, India has set an ambitious target of reaching 175 GW of installed renewable energy capacity by 2022. This includes 100 GW of solar power and 60GW of wind power capacity. Various policy initiatives have been taken to achieve this target. Studies have revealed that in India solar and wind resources are complimentary to each other in many sites and hybridiza􀀒on of the two can address various issues.
Government of India has issued the national Wind‐Solar hybrid policy on May 14, 2018. Primary objective of this policy is to provide a framework for promotion of large scale grid Integrated solarwind hybrid system. This will lead to utilization of land and transmission infrastructure, reduction in the variability in renewable power genera􀀒on and thus achieving better grid stability. This is a major policy initiative for the RE sector and is likely to help augment capacity addition in the RE sector on a larger scale in the longer run.
Policy interventions are required not only for new wind – solar hybrid plants but also for initiating hybridization of existing wind and solar plants.
