As the world, and particularly India, moves towards clean energy options, power producers in India are also expanding presence in the last link of this value chain. Indian power companies, private and public, are now increasing focus on clean energy and related infrastructure. JSW Energy, earlier this month, announced plans to enter the energy storage space and manufacturing of electric vehicles. State run NTPC Ltd is also reviewing various clean energy-related infrastructure options.
