This paper examines how office and commercial complexes in India can take the lead in becoming 100% RE users by installing storage and carrying out energy management.

India is highly dependent on coal for producing its electricity. Even though the per-capita emission of GHG for India is lower than that for most advanced countries, reflecting its lower per-capita energy consumption, its total emissions of GHG is close to some of the big polluters. No wonder there is increasing pressure on India to move towards Renewable Energy (RE).

India now produces solar and wind-based electricity at a cost lower or comparable to that of coal-based electricity. However, while coal-based electricity generation can be increased or decreased at will to match demand, that is not so for solar and wind-based electricity, as the quantity produced entirely depends on nature, the sun-hours, and the wind-hours.

The only way that this could match demand is if there is massive energy-storage. This paper examines how office and commercial complexes in India can take the lead in becoming 100% RE users by installing storage and carrying out energy management.
