Bihar leads in policy on renewable energy: Report

Greenpeace has released its assessment report on Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) titled Powering Ahead on Renewables: Leaders and Laggards', which ranks all the states on their performance in renewable energy supply and calls for revision of RPO mechanism based on equity principle. Bihar takes the lead on a constructive policy on renewable energy, the report said.

Though Bihar achieved only 40 per cent of its target, it emerged as leader in terms of driving a constructive policy for renewables. Bihar displayed astuteness by accepting the fact that decentralised renewable energy can power its rural areas that do not have access to centralised grid based energy. The state faced an energy deficit of about 2,940 million units in 2012, report said.

In all, out of 29 states, 22 failed to meet their RPO targets which led to loss of more than 25 per cent electricity that was expected to be generated from renewable energy sources in 2012. Very few states have demonstrated the leadership in implementing the RPO framework and fulfilling their obligation on renewables.

The north eastern state of Meghalaya and Nagaland, the hill states of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh and the southern coastal states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka have clearly taken the lead in not only meeting their RPO targets but also generating over and above the targets.
