“Rooftop Revolution – Unleashing Delhi’s Solar Potential” is an in-depth analysis of the potential for rooftop solar in Delhi, a city that has often claimed to be the world’s greenest capital. The report comes at a time when India’s political nerve-centre and national capital is facing a potential electricity crisis. Demand in the city is expected to reach an all-time high of 6,000 MW this summer while more than 17 states, many of which the city relies on for its power, will face significant power shortages. With the country’s eyes on Delhi to be India’s answer to the world’s sustainable city concept, the crippling power supply situation reminds us that there is an urgent need to rethink electricity generation and supply in the city.
