The viral spread has driven key shifts: Factories have shut down, corporations are stepping up to help build ventilators, generative manufacturing is helping in innovative ways (printing ventilator valves), technology is helping with remote work, telehealth is poised to emerge as a preferred medium for non-COVID health issue resolution and many more shifts are on the horizon
On April 12, 2019, the revised Renewable Energy Development Act approved by Taiwan authorities set the goal of over 20GW renewables by 2025. It aims to increase the proportion of renewable energy by 20% from the present 5% by including the policy to free Taiwan from nuclear energy by 2025
For many plants in the Indian power market, the CFB scrubber is a compelling economic choice particularly for units rated at 600MW or less due to its lower installed cost, auxiliary power, and water usage. CFB scrubbers also offer a compact footprint and low maintenance while maintaining high reliability
OEMs in the power sector need to utilize AI for their vital product developments to speed up the design prototyping process. They need to leverage Machine Learning to align the product with actual operational & flexibility requirements
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.
The necessity to opt for technological up-gradation and network strengthening in the distribution segment to address the aspects of operational efficiency and financial sustainability of the utilities makes smart grid one of the evolving and high-value markets for Indian market players.
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
As more and more countries are adopting EVs, it will shortly start moving on high pace and India being globally connected economy will reap the benefits of global adoption and it will reach to majority stage in a shorter span than other countries as Indian customers will form part of an early majority in terms of the global market.
Switching from a traditional business approach to a guided roadmap, with opportunities to increase profitability aligned with business objectives, is indeed a paradigm shift. However, outsourcing the strategic O&G engineering functions to a trusted, thinking partner can be an effective way to increase viability, profitability, efficiencies and productivity gains at each stage of the development process
The market for graphene batteries is predicted to reach $115 million by 2022. It is expected that graphene based metal-air batteries and fuel cells will make battery technology more economically viable
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
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
