Distributed Generation gaining ground In traditional grid architecture, large power plants are located at far off locations from where electricity is wheeled to load centres. Distributed generation is used to generate electricity on a small scale at a large number of locations located close to the load. With the growth of solar energy, distributed generation has been adopted on a large scale in various countries as an important source of power.

Many examples of success Some countries have successfully tapped solar energy by promoting large number of small installations on the vacant rooftops/ unutilized land. Italy and Germany have promoted solar power with attractive FiTs for Distributed Solar. Today, Italy has more than 5 Lakh installations and Germany has more than 14 Lakh installations. Distributed solar is an important source of power for these countries.
