An Introduction
The 2021 Union budget of India recognised financial state and monopolisaiton of discoms as well as need for clean sources of energy as a serious concern. It provided assistance for infrastructure creation including prepaid smart metering, feeder separation, upgradation of systems and promised a framework to empower consumers with choices of more than one discom. It also took a step towards India's ambitious goal of 175 gigawatts (GW) of installed renewable capacity by 2022 by proposing additional infusion of Rs 1,000 crore to SECI and Rs 1,500 crore to IREDA and launching National Hydrogen Mission in 2021-22 for generating Hydrogen from green power sources.

What will be the implications of these measures on the power and renewable energy sector? 
What are the policy recommendations and strategies which can be utilised to create a roadmap for more reliable access to electricity in the coming year. What are the recommendations for the upcoming year? This upcoming Twitter Conversation will have our experts Jaideep Mukherji, Anant Sudharshan, Bharat Jairaj, Satish Kumar, Abhishek Jain, Shaleen Singhal, Ms. Lydia Powell, Ashwini K. Swain and Jyoti Mukul engaging with our online audience to answer some of these questions.
