“We May Soon Say Goodbye to Monofacial”

As bifacial technology establishes itself in the market, module cost is likely to fall further to be competitive with monofacial. This will have a significant impact on financial models. Bifacial technology is no more a future vision, it is becoming the reality.

How Much of Impact Would A 25% Weight Decrease On a Panel Be to The Industry?

The greatest performance benefits for bifacial technology are seen when it is deployed in tracking systems. For single-axis tracking system, 25% weight loss has been shown to provide superior alleviation over the tracking system, as this does not require special design or strengthened material

Primary Methods Can Effectively Control ‘Nox’ious Emissions from India’s Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plants

Almost two-thirds of India’s installed power generation capacity is based on coal-fired plants, but most of these plants, especially the older ones, are yet to procure or install the requisite technology for emission control. The industry, however, has begun to take cognizance of this and a big push is underway to reduce the emission levels. The total power generation in the country is expected to cross 830 GW by the year 2030, and almost half of this will be coal-based

Individual, Smaller Capacity Solar Power Projects Costlier

While solar projects can be set up anywhere, its scattering leads to higher project costs per MW and higher transmission losses. When projects are individual and of a lower capacity, they incur substantially higher expenses in site development, drawing separate transmission lines to the nearest substation, procuring water and in the creation of other necessary infrastructure

Urban Energy Transition: Scaling Up a Decentralised Electricity Future

Rooftop solar systems are one of the most suited clean technologies for the urban built environment. Moreover, 82 percent of India’s potential for technology in urban areas is in the residential sector. However, uptake of the technology has been largely among industrial and commercial consumers. For residential consumers, installing rooftop solar systems possesses several challenges.

Solar Pumps - Answer to India’s Agricultural Woes?

As the world’s largest producer of cotton and the second-largest producer of wheat and rice, India is undoubtedly an agrarian country. About 800 million people out of the country’s 1.3 billion population depend directly or indirectly on agriculture for their livelihoods. India’s farmers have constantly faced the brunt of climate change and crop failures since most of the agriculture in the country is monsoon based

India’s Clean Energy Access

Rural electrification has been a goal that India had been pursuing for long as part of its own development agenda, even before the advent of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and thereafter, SDGs. However, it was in recent years that this really picked up pace after such programs were taken up in mission mode, in a goal-oriented manner accompanied by real-time monitoring mechanisms.

E-Mobility & Its Future in India

The government has been prescient of the rising importance of battery storage in spurring the e-mobility movement and has established the National Mission on Transformative Mobility and Battery Storage. It is encouraging the setting up large-scale, export-competitive integrated batteries and cell-manufacturing giga-plants. With this, India has taken the next step towards creating a robust domestic manufacturing infrastructure
