Grants to this Grantee
for strengthening power-system modeling capacity in Indian states  
This grant will support the Project to develop, deploy, and socialize an open source electricity planning and production cost modeling tool to be used in India by civil society, utilities, and regulators. This tool will help facilitate the integration of renewable energy, while identifying pathways to reduce costs through more efficient utilization of the existing system. This will become increasingly important as India expands its grid and deploys more electric vehicles.
for general operating support  
The Regulatory Assistance Project provides technical assistance to utility and environmental regulators to facilitate the adoption of clean-energy policies. It is composed of former regulators, who leverage their expertise with advocates to promote sustainable low-carbon power sector development in the U.S., China, India, Europe, and Latin America. In Europe, its focus is developing power markets that reward emission-free generation. In China, it advises grantees and the government on reforming how clean power is brought onto the grid and reform of wholesale markets; and in India, they are working with regulators and grantees to strengthen the Indian energy boards and provide technical assistance on renewable energy integration.
