Green energy open access portal launched

The green energy open access portal has been launched.

Any consumer with a connected load of 100 kW or above can get renewable energy through open access from any renewable energy generating plant set up by himself; or by any developer. The application for open access can be made on this portal. The portal can be accessed at for processing of applications related to green energy open access by the stakeholders including open access participants, traders, power exchanges, national / regional / state load despatch centres, central/state transmission utilities. The portal provides a transparent, simplified, uniform and streamlined procedure for granting open access to green energy that will be key to facilitating deepening of electricity markets and enabling integration of renewable energy resources into the grid. The nodal agencies will post progress reports related to green energy open access to stakeholders through the portal. The approval for green energy open access will be granted in 15 days or else it will be deemed to have been granted, subject to the fulfilment of technical requirements through the portal. The move is aimed at ensuring affordable, reliable, sustainable, and green energy for all.
