EDITORIAL Dear Energetica India Readers, Energetica India wishes the Indian Power Sector a Very Happy 2016 and welcomes you to our first issue of the year. Earlier this month, bids were submitted to Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) for 500 MW of solar PV projects in Maharashtra under Viability Gap Funding (VGF) mechanism. The lowest tariff reached was Rs.4.41; reversing the trend of falling solar tariffs in India. But these tariffs prove that solar developers are comfortable with prices that can be compared to tariff from coal power plants. The Maharashtra cabinet has recently sanctioned Rs 2,682 crore to promote non-conventional and renewable energy in the next five years. The budget of Rs 2,682 crore is to ensure more solar products are used for power generation that would also lead to reducing air pollution through thermal energy. At the same time, the Indian wind energy sector is buzzing with the entry of a new player and technology. The Estonian wind turbine technology developer Goliath Wind has signed a 100 million euro partnership deal with India’s Steelite Engineering Ltd. under which the Indian company will start producing wind turbines based on Estonian technology. The partners also set up a joint venture, Steelite Capella Wind Plc that will market the India-produced turbines in India and close markets.
