Scaling up renewable energy mini-grids for rural electrification
India is struggling with the problem of providing access to energy services even after 66 years of Independence. According to the census of 2011, more than 77 million households still use kerosene for lighting. In rural India, more than 44 per cent of the households lack basic access to electricity. Even those villages that have been provided with grid power receive less than 6 hours supply in most cases.
