Directions(71 80): Read the following passage


carefully and answer the questions given below it.
Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold
to help you locate them while answering some of
the questions.
Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs) have long
been recognised for their potential as environment friendly, versatile and sustainable energy alternatives for rural areas of India. However, despite efforts by the Ministry of Non-conventional
Energy Sources (MNES) and the India Renewable
Energy Development Agency (IREDA), RETs have
not yet succeeded as a major alternative source of
energy in rural India. The programmes of MNES

Practice Set 2

and IREDA designed to support small-scale distributed systems have relied on heavily subsidized
credit, technology training and consumer awareness activities to stimulate the market for end-user
finance for renewable energy systems for domestic
use and a tiered set of capital and interest rate subsidies for water pumping in the agriculture sector.
While end-users in some rural areas now have access to solar-powered lanterns or lights and biogas
systems for their home, and agricultural operations
are taking advantage of remarkable capital subsidies for solar energy to use for water pumping, the
use of heavy capital and interest rate subsidies, and
the focus on domestic use rather than on matching
renewable energy technology applications with income enhancement opportunities have tied the success of these programmes to government budgets
and political cycles limiting both the breadth and
depth of development and penetration of projects
that harness renewable energy resources.
In order of fully understand the barriers to
the development of renewable energy enterprises/projects in rural India, we must review a
few of the key characteristics of investments in renewable energy projects.
First, investments in renewable energy projects are
relatively information and capital-intensive. The
greater information intensity arises primarily from
the need for more upfront information regarding the energy resource compared to conventional
power projects. Renewable energy resource assessments, in most cases, need to be site-specific
and preferably with data for a significant period
of time. Renewable energy technologies are also
more capital-intensive than conventional hydrocarbon ones because of the large upfront investment
cost in generation equipment needed to utilize a
free or low-cost energy source. Due to the capital intensity, the financial viability of such investments and projects is often more dependent
on longer-term financing structures available at the
outset of the project.
Second, individual renewable energy investments
are generally smaller than those made in conventional power generation projects due to constraints
on local resource availability. Local resource availability is in turn limited by the low energy density

of renewable energy resources. As extensive time


and resources are necessary to catalogue the site
specific resource availability before financing can
be considered, the technical and managerial knowhow requirements and associated costs that occur
prior to the project often represent a much larger
percentage of project costs than in the case of conventional power projects.
Third, entrepreneurs developing small-scale renewable energy projects face the same business and financial risks associated with any enterprise. The
viability of any enterprise depends on its ability to
build a business based on solid concepts and competencies in sound contexts that mitigate those
risks.
Considering the aforementioned characteristics,
the key barriers to development of small-scale renewable energy projects are fourfold. First, rural
entrepreneurs do not usually have the knowledge
and expertise necessary to write business plans for
projects that link renewable energy technologies
with productive use of applications, to assess the
rewards and risks of the project and estimate the
costs to mitigate the associated risks. All of these
are necessary inputs before a project is presented
to a financier for investment. In addition, the negotiations with financiers may be complex, involving concepts and approaches that are not familiar
to the entrepreneur. Second, the paperwork and
soft costs associated with identifying and obtaining access to financing for small and medium-scale
projects is high relative to the financing needs.
Without critical first-stage financing, most of the
entrepreneurs interested in developing renewable
energy projects will not be able to take the time
away from normal business operations to implement renewable energy projects. Third, many of
the renewable energy technologies are still relatively new to the market, so the commercial chains,
networks, marketing and financial links, and other
institutional structures that service traditional energy technologies are not in place to assist the entrepreneur even if she/he has the skills, know-how
and capital. Fourth, given the newness, there is a
limited availability of investment capital to finance
the high upfront costs associated with the initial
stages of developing a renewable energy project.
