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.
It is efficient power supply which forms the backbone of any Smart City because it is a prerequisite to all the processes involving these “Cities of the Future”. The efficient flow of electricity, in turn, depends on a robust and efficient transmission network, to which smart grid applications hold the key
In a recent analysis of consumers’ perspective in five cities in India and covering 1808 households, we found that financing rooftop solar for the residential customers is a major concern. Only 5 percent of the households in our study applied for loans from banks and financial organizations
With the help of new technology, emerging companies can break downplastics at the molecular level and recapture these Energy Sources to use again in various fuels. This technique can be used in India too to degrade the unused Plastic and use waste in efficient and productive way!
Many Indian infrastructure projects – including those in the power sector - are affected by time over runs, placing project viability at risk. Delays in land acquisition and site handover remain key reasons for schedule over runs during the pre-execution phase. Government guidelines to speed-up the process plus the online clearance application system are helping address these challenges
By 2030, India hopes to meet 40% of its energy demand from renewable sources and solar power will play a vital role in meeting this ambitious target. In 2018, India added around 9.5GW of renewable energy capacity with 7GW solar and 2GW wind power respectively. As on September 2018, India’s total solar power generation capacity grew to around 26GW with 87% utility-scale installations and 13% in rooftop solar projects
As successful solar power plant projects rely on adequate funding, it is imperative for financial institutions to ensure they are backed by technically sound and profitable power plants. This also means that while financial due diligence is critical for investing in a solar project, it is equally imperative to ensure that the project is technically sound
The financial palatability of the project, the net present value (NPV), is the highest in Karnataka followed by New Delhi for OPEX model of tenure of 10 years. However, if we observe east and west zones, they are more attractive towards CAPEX model with higher NPVs. In addition, it has been observed that irrespective of type of roof, ownership model will remain same zone wise
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
