Whilst many industries have deployed AI and ML applications to solve existing traditional problems. It is the forward-looking possibilities that are more interesting and imperative for the energy domain. This has already given rise to new solutions, which are in turn steering the development of the sector. Such as insight generation, infrastructure planning, and automated decision making
While this project is relatively small in size compared to many of today’s solar farms, it represented a big accomplishment for the team. A fresh perspective was applied to the overall EPC process focusing on design and installation efficiencies and produced a showcase system that serves as the standard for the current and future work.”—Corey Shalanski, Joule Energy
The Government undoubtedly has been encouraging the move towards Electric Vehicles and the shift shall be more evident by 2030, understanding which Magenta already has begun its plan to build the seamless network of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations, enabling easier adoption among the audience with proximity and making them future ready.
DuPont has been engaged in an extensive field survey program for more than 5 years to help gain an in- depth understanding of what makes a reliable and durable PV module. The studies have found that many materials used in PV modules demonstrate signs of visual changes in less than 2 years of operation and resulted in power loss, safety risk or both.
Presently, the exchange has 6000+ participants registered across electricity, REC and ESCert segments comprising distribution utilities, generators, large consumers and several renewable energy generators.
Thanks to technological advancement, windmill owners can keep a tab on the daily operation through technically advanced IoT enabled products. There are instruments that help in monitoring the performance and also alert the owner on the issues that need to be addressed. This ensures that there are no unexpected downtime
“An immediate rethinking of on-ground policies needs to be done to facilitate the ‘realization’ of solar. While domestic producers of solar-cells need to be protected and their interests promoted, it cannot be done at the cost of increasing the product cost for the end-user, thereby jeopardizing the future of the entire industry. The falling currency rates have definitely not helped the matters either”
A major issue that must be addressed and is unique to India currently, is the challenge of taxation –after the implementation of GST. Most industry players are still unsure of the precise rate to be applied for EPC services. Additionally, different states current levy varied tax rates that range from 5to 18 percent GST on these services that further complicates the situation
Developing large scale charge point network in Indian urban environment will be challenging. High upfront capital costs and present low levels of uptake for electric vehicles mean that returns on investment will only be realized over longer periods. That would require for government to create opportunities for investment in new rapid charging infrastructure by reducing key barriers to investment, in particular access to suitable sites with sufficient power
The cost of an EV in India is determined by the cost of the battery which at this time constitutes around 35 per cent of the cost of the EV. The cost of the battery in turn governed by international dynamics and who holds the minerals required for battery production. Companies in India are working on producing Lithium based batteries in India which is bound to bring battery prices down
Ride-sharing companies have announced ambitious plans to invest in electric mobility. Ola aims to have 10,000 EVs in 2019 as part of its Mission Electric. Lithium cabs, Bhagirathi are some successful examples and have developed an EV fleet of about 500 vehicles already and are active in enterprise transportation segment
Analysts estimate that 30,000 slow-charging and 15,000 fast-charging stations need to be established in a phased manner within the next three to five years. At every three kilometers in cities, a minimum of two high-charge points and a fast-charging point are required
There are around 4,000 charging stations that are planned to be set up in the country which would constitute only 1 per cent of the total charging stations projected to be needed by the end of 2030. This is meant to encourage the use of EVs and create enough demand to attract other players to set up charging stations, thus creating a bigger market for EVs in the near future
Cygni’s flagship product is Integrated Solar-DC Inverterless Systems. This is one of the most efficient photovoltaic power backup systems available in the market offering up to 40% lesser power consumption and 50% reduction in electricity bills. In addition, Cygni systems come integrated with Mobile App, which helps you monitor your energy consumption, which in turn will enable you to monitor and control your energy usage
Tim Buckley, IEEFA Director of Energy Finance Studies, said electricity users, the state and central government, and the project’s lenders should not be burdened with yet another expensive stranded asset at a time when local residents need cleaner energy options
