Electrical energy and its convenient accessibility act as a benchmark of advancement and a key essential for all-circular prosperity. No core financial pursuit can be sustained without an adequate and consistent source of energy. India has been accounted for nearly 10% of the upsurge in total energy demand since the end of 2000 and among the main five Green-house-gas (GHG) emitters. Renewable energy (RE) is fast emerging as a prominent resource of electrical power in concerns with rapidly increasing demand and GHG emission. This work presents details of governmental initiatives in terms of acts, policies, mission, scheme & incentives since 2000, worldwide investment in the Indian power sector to promote the Renewable Energy Sources (RESs) and the feasibility of solar and wind-based electrical energy throughout Indian terrestrial. Further, this work presents a comprehensive framework for the deployment of microgrids in the Indian scenario. In order to validate the presented framework, at 9 different locations, the microgrid is deployed using Homer® as simulating and optimizing tool by incorporating environmental constraint and grid availability parameter. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd
