This Act is broadly classified into the following sections:

1. Institutional Structure: The constitution of decision-making and advisory bodies in the
government, which ensure the development and implementation of a stable and conducive policy regime to facilitate investments for development of renewable energy sources.

2. Supportive Eco – System: The development of conducive ecosystem, which promotes the utilization of RE sources and permits investments. This includes, RE Policy and Plan, Resource assessment, policies on testing, monitoring and verification, and indigenous manufacturing of components.

3. Economic and Financial Framework: Constitution and operation of National and State level funds to support achieving of the objectives of this Act.

4. RE Applications: This section covers the application of the above described framework to two main categories of renewable sources:

(1) Second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth proviso including the explanation under sub-clause (c) of Clause (1) of Regulation 5 of the Principal Regulations shall be deleted.

(2) The following provisos shall be added after the first proviso under sub-clause (c) of Clause (1) of Regulation 5 of the Principal Regulations:

“Provided further that a renewable energy generator selling electricity component to third party through open access, shall be eligible for the entire energy generated from such plant for participating in the REC scheme subject to the condition that such generator has not availed or does not propose to avail any benefit in the form of concessional/promotional transmission or wheeling charges or banking facility benefit or concessional cross subsidy surcharge:

Provided also that if such a renewable energy generator forgoes on its own, the benefits of concessional/promotional transmission or wheeling charges or banking facility benefit or concessional cross subsidy surcharge, it shall become eligible for participating in the REC scheme only after the date of forgoing such benefits:
Provided also that if any dispute arises as to whether a renewable energy generator has availed such concessional/promotional benefits, the same shall be referred to the Appropriate Commission for decision.

Explanation: For the purpose of this Regulation, the expression “banking facility benefit” shall mean only such banking facility whereby any renewable energy generator gets the benefit of utilizing the banked energy at any time (including peak hours) even when it has injected into grid during off-peak hours.”

(3) A new clause shall be inserted after Clause (IA) as under:-
“(IB) A Captive Generating Plant (CGP) based on renewable energy sources and a renewable energy generating plant not fulfilling the conditions of CGP as prescribed in Electricity Rules, 2005 but having self consumption shall not be eligible for participating in the REC scheme for the energy generated from such plant to the extent of self-consumption.”
