Andrew Hines, Chief Commercial Officer at CleanMax, told Mercom, “We are witnessing a very strong demand for open access power and group captive supplies of power from commercial and industrial customers across India seeking a combination of cost savings and environmental benefits. We are able to supply renewable energy via open access in most major states in India, and we are expecting strong growth in this segment. What would enable stronger growth in this segment would be a more consistent policy and regulatory approach to these contracts. Investors, developers, and power consumers all require long-term clarity before getting into long-term contracts. So, more predictable, rational charges for usage of grid infrastructure, and more consistent approvals for projects would be beneficial to this segment.”
