Wärtsilä and Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT have carried out a first-of-its kind power system analysis exploring a net-zero power system across India by 2050. The findings of the study show that India can accelerate the transition towards a cost-optimal power system based on 100% renewable energy and avoid locking in a highly polluting, more expensive and less effective energy resources.
The study not only provides insights on the key role that flexible technologies play in the power system, but also allows central and state level stakeholders to garner a system level view for better planning to develop solutions which can enable a smooth transition towards a carbon neutral future.
This event was co-organised with:
Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT.
Frederic Carron is the Vice President, Middle East & Asia for Wärtsilä. He has over two decades of experience in accelerating the energy transition by optimising power systems with flexible power generation in Asia and the Middle East.
