In 2020, GOGLA initiated a deep dive study into the relevance of hybrid AC-DC energy infrastructure in India with the objective of providing insights into how energy-efficient appliances can be integrated with the electricity grid. The GOGLA hybrid AC-DC infrastructure study (here) emphasised that India is a weak grid market and consumers face various issues like weak and unreliable grid networks, safety, inefficient appliances, billing problems amongst others.
GOGLA intends to follow up on the findings and recommendations of the Opportunities for Hybrid AC-DC Infrastructure in India report, and to work on the next set of activities. In this regard, GOGLA intends to establish a forum of key stakeholders that will -through a series of roundtable meetings - explore key thematic areas and develop a comprehensive road map necessary to for this sector to scale. We are seeking an external consultant or a firm to support us in the first phase of activities.
