In pursuing sustainable energy solutions and reducing carbon emissions, the focus on renewable and alternative fuels has gained significant momentum. Compressed Biogas (CBG) has emerged as a promising biofuel, providing a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to traditional fossil fuels. Compressed air, a versatile and widely used medium, is pivotal in various processes within biogas plants.
Low-carbon hydrogen production is expected to generate USD 70 billion opportunity in the hydrogen economy by 2030.
Electric vehicle performance directly depends on the performance of the electric motor. Efficiency is a critical factor in electric motors and future developments are likely to focus on increasing efficiency further. This could involve the use of new materials, improved design, and more advanced control algorithms.
The solar inverter manufacturers need to get valid IEC certificates and reports from accredited laboratories of their solar inverters by June 30. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has announced that it has extended the deadline for the solar inverter makers to get valid International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) certificates and test reports from accredited test laboratories of their solar inverters. Apparently, the new deadline is June 30, 2023.
Bifacial solar photovoltaic modules convert solar radiation received on their front and back sides into electricity. Calculating the solar energy generated by solar radiation received by the back side is complicated by shadows, varied weather and dust conditions by day and season, back side equipment and reflections, and albedo.
Decarbonisation is a global imperative today, and India has made ambitious commitments in this direction. There is a strong focus on renewable-based power, alternate energy sources, and energy storage systems. However, electricity demand will grow steadily, and renewable-based energy solutions will take time to attain the desired scale and efficiency.
Agrivoltaic Systems (AVS) aims for maximum land productivity along with advantages including increased crop productivity, reduction in water requirement for irrigation, and reduction in agricultural land degradation along with other socioeconomic benefits pertaining to farmers.
Biofuels is a perfect solution that adds green value to the transport sector. It is economical, user-friendly fuel that will nourish our economy. Nowadays, methanol-blended petrol used as biofuel in India is in discussion. However, without strong policy and monitory support from all stakeholders, it will be impossible to fulfill our dream.
As the world is dominated by the challenges of climate change and environmental degradation, solar inverters are playing an important role in the energy transition landscape. The efficiency, reliability, and functionality of solar inverters are paramount to the overall performance of a solar power system.
India is the world’s 5th largest country today in terms of installed Solar capacity with 71000 MW installations as on July 31, 2023 trailing Germany by 3 GW. India’s solar capacity grew over 23 times in the last 9 years from 3000 MW in 2014 to 71000 in 2023 (July) and attracted investments in the multitude of 60 billion USD in the last 7 years.
According to the estimate of net zero emissions by 2070, most energy demand growth in this decade would be met by low-carbon energy sources. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has therefore announced more ambitious targets for 2030, including adding 500 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity, reducing the economy's emissions intensity by 45 percent, and cutting 1 billion tonnes of CO2.
In the fast-paced world of solar energy, certifications play a crucial role in ensuring the reliability and performance of solar modules. As technology continues to evolve, it becomes increasingly important to invest in certified products that adhere to industry standards. The article explores the significance of certifications for solar modules and how they can benefit both manufacturers and consumers.
Innovative lubricant solutions are being developed to ensure optimum equipment protection and oil performance in a wide range of conditions, including onshore, offshore, dry or wet, and at high or low temperatures to ensure that turbines keep running at peak efficiency.
Connected mobility is acting as a game changer and revolutionising how people engage with their vehicles. Electric scooters have become smarter with the incorporation of features such as GPS navigation, smartphone integration, and remote diagnostics.
DISCOMs need to adopt technological innovations and restructure their infrastructure to make it seamless for renewables to become dominant energy providers in the coming future.
