ANDHRA PRADESH Targeting Established RENEWABLE ENERGY • Solar: - 300 sunny days in a year with a solar potential of 38.44 GWp as per NISE. - The government is targeting a capacity of 5000 MW in the next 5 years. • Wind: - As estimated by the NIWE has a total wind potential of 14,497 MW at a hub height of 80m - The targets of the policy are to set up a 4000 MW wind generation capacity over the next 5 years. • Capacity addition of 37.9% every year is required to meet the target of 18477 MW set by MNRE. Efficiency Developing • Solar - GoAP is promoting setting up of solar PV manufacturing and training facilities - GoAP is promoting net metering for roof top PV with incentives for 25 years over and above JNNSM incentives - Exemption from distribution losses for injection under 33 kV - Exemption from clearance requirements of AP pollution control board for solar PV - There is a significant policy push in terms of financing and un-complicating of procedures (NREDCAP) towards setting up of grid connected solar projects. • Wind: - No T&D charges for power supplied within the state - 100% energy banking facility at 2% is provided for all 12 months. Peak periods drawl restrictions are imposed - Open access clearance is provided for the complete life of the project or 25 years whichever is earlier. - Wind power generated will not be charged electricity duty for power sold to AP Discoms. - Deemed PPP, Industry status awarded, Must run status awarded, No clearance from pollution control board and automatic conversion of land to Non agricultural Coordination Developing • 44.75 MW capacity is installed under JNNSM Phase 1 • AP’s RPO targets are not aligned with the National RPO targets. Being a RE-rich state, the RPO compliance for AP should be increased to bring it in line with the NAPCC targets. Implementation Developing • During monsoon season, reservoirs fill up and hydro power becomes a must-run. At the same time, due to high winds even production of wind is high but the load is not so high. Due to low requirement of power, conventional power is curtailed. • Shortage of fuel (Gas/coal) for conventional power plants • restricts balancing capability 43 energetica INDIA · NOV | DEC15
