 It seems India will have its own unique model to push for higher use of gas in the economy.
8It is now concluded that the traditional direct switch from coal to gas will not happen in India.
8It is going to be a longer, more derivative route. Hence more complicated as well.
8But despite the grim narrative, there are some success stories, which give hope that there still is vast scope to raise gas consumption India

There is no escaping from late payment fees for discoms to renewable companies
8A high court has established that late payment fees have to be paid, at best the first installment within a month and the next spread over a year
8When the high court order was flouted, the generators went to to the regulatory body, who also ruled that there is no option for the discoms but to pay up

Even as Indian policy makers continue to emphasize the transition from coal to gas in India, some parts of the world are already moving on to a post-gas world. 
8"Get rid of gas" is finding an increasing acceptance among the citizenry in any parts of the world and government's are reacting to that call.
8In some countries, plans have been put in pace to be gas free by 2050. Plans are already been drawn up, and gas consumption will begin falling very soon in these countries while it ramps up in India.
8Is it time for India to look at a straight coal-to-renewable transition instead of moving from coal to gas to renewable energy?
8Having not built the gas infrastructure, will India be better off jumping straight to renewables, like Africa did, when it moved to mobile telephone without building a fixed line infrastructure?
8There are great advantages for a country such as India if it can skip an entire energy paradigm and move on ahead in the direction where the advanced countries are headed, or for that matter in the direction where the world will have to be eventually headed. The costs -- in terms of ecological health, pipeline and attendant network costs as also higher energy values -- would be much lower if that could be done.
8There is not doubt that the transition from coal to gas is easier than from coal to renewables or even gas to renewables, as harder decisions have to be taken.
8But it is better to bite the bullet now than later or else by the time the transition to gas takes place, policy makers may find out to their dismay that all the cost and infrastructure were just a waste of time and money.

If India were to jump from coal to renewable, skipping the intermediate step that involves a partial transition to gas, where will it leave the gas industry?
8For one, the industry has to be united as it is not now.
8The point to understand is that political and public opinion can radically and suddenly change the prospects of an important economic sector like the gas industry.
8The call to move to renewable from gas will resonate sooner than later, and it is time to prepare for it.
8Then again, industry will still have a role to play, albeit a different one from what it does now. It needs a tailored approach to natural gas, so that it is in sync with, instead of being opposed to, the on-going innovation in the energy sector. 
8The gas industry should look at smart interactions with other sources of energy. There are ways by which the entire energy supply can become climate-friendly, while also remaining reliable and affordable for all.

Rooftop solar power is getting to be cheaper than grid power, and far cheaper than gas-based power
8Latest price benchmarks put the cost at around Rs 4.50/kwh for rooftop power
8The rate for smaller installations are pegged at Rs 5.40/kwh
8The point to note is that it is an all-inclusive cost that includes installation, commissioning, transportation, insurance, five year AMC and applicable fees and taxes
8Will gas-based power be delivered at these rates, without a hefty dose of subsidy?
8"The government is proposing the revival of stranded gas-based power capacity, but the plain truth is that it is more expensive," a power sector official told our sister website,www.energylineindia.com

While there is much consensus about the need for climate action, grasping the complexity of the ecological transition is a different matter. As a result, the report we’ve provided below intends to shed light on the key elements that require our attention if we are to succeed in achieving a holistic ecological transition.
8Tackling the impact of climate change and facilitating a just ecological transition is a matter of reconciling the forces of supply and demand with the politics that surround them. Armed with compelling data and personal experience living through the impact of climate change, young people across the globe are demanding a different deal from governments as inaction increases the risk of inheriting an inhospitable environment. The urgency of tackling climate is evident as green parties saw huge gains in the recent European elections, signifying that this issue has finally broken into the European political mainstream.
8This publication highlights the difficult trade-offs, political questions and market challenges of the ecological transition while presenting pragmatic solutions for a climate-neutral Europe.

8Even as the government report rules out additional gas-based power plants, a BP executive reiterated that India has a domestic gas resource potential of more than 100 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) which includes conventional, unconventional, and yet-to-find gas.
8This resource base has the potential to meet up to 50% of anticipated demand for gas (consistent with two-degrees) through 2050.
8Developing India’s domestic gas production will help reduce energy imports, improving energy security as well as enabling more investment and creating.

8In what could appear as a big blow to the gas industry in India, a government agency seems to see no requirement for additional gas-based power capacity of 25,000 MW in the next 10 years.
8No fresh gas-based capacity has been considered, as there is limited availability of domestic gas, axiomatically assuming that LNG would be too expensive to drive up gas-based capacity in India.
8"What is implicit in this argument is that coal-based power capacity is being promoted as against far cleaner gas-based power," an industry executive told this website. "It does not take into consideration a host of factors, including a tax on carbon and lower gas prices, that could allow for a substitution of coal with gas, as is the trend in other parts of the world," he went on to say.
8"If the gas-based power sector stays where it is, it will severely limit India's capacity to transit into a cleaner economy," he said

The Government of Andhra Pradesh issued a notification forming a high-level negotiation committee (HLNC) to review, negotiate and bring down the cost of wind and solar power purchase agreements (PPAs) tied-up by the state distribution utilities (discoms).
8The functions of the committee include a) to review the high cost wind and solar agreements, b) to negotiate and bring down the prices of wind and solar power PPAs and c) to make suitable recommendations.
8The committee is to be guided by the lowest wind and solar power rates in the corresponding years, prevailing rates and opportunity cost of power purchase for the discoms.

Global warming mitigation proponents have come up with new research that says that methane, the chief component in natural gas, is responsible for 25% of global warming to date.
8At least 202 LNG terminal projects are in development worldwide, including 116 export terminals and 86 import terminals. Total outlay is a massive $1.3 trillion
8They reportedly present a threat as large as coal-based power projects, new research seems to point out
8Despite its price tag ($1.3 trillion) and its role in the climate crisis, the expansion of LNG infrastructure has received relatively little scrutiny in terms of stranded asset risk.

8Gas-based power plants are best suited for operation during peak hours due to their quick start-up and ramp-up/down characteristics.
8In fiscal 2019, peak power demand at the all-India level increased 8% on-year to 177 GW from 164 GW in 2018. This, coupled with rising renewable penetration– which is an infirm source of energy with wide fluctuations in generation –necessitates grid balancing through operationalisation of peaker plants like gas or hydro.
8Currently, discoms are meeting most of their peak power requirement through bidding-based short-term contracts, with discovered tariffs of Rs 5-6 per unit. Gas-based power from the stranded plants can be a better way of meeting peak demand for some of these discoms.
8Environmental concerns over higher dependence on coal-based power which is more polluting can be partly addressed through increased utilization of relatively clean gas-based power
