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 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
Tim Buckley, IEEFA Director of Energy Finance Studies, said electricity users, the state and central government, and the project’s lenders should not be burdened with yet another expensive stranded asset at a time when local residents need cleaner energy options
Blockchain based platforms will make the energy sharing easy will decrease the load on the grid and will help the individual or a community to be energy independent.With small steps, the world is accepting this blockchain technology. This blockchain technology is going to be the 4th industrial revolution. Companies like EcoCoin and TransActive are creating a platform which can ease the process of energy trading locally which will further help to attract new and more people in renewable energy
The Government has been the real catalyst till date in pushing the green agenda and will have to continue holding fort till the country reaches the finish line. Although a handful of naysayers and sceptics doubt India’s ability to reach the 175 GW target by 2022, there are far more believers who strongly feel that India may reach this target well before 2022
While the 60-GW ground-mounted solar target is still achievable, rooftop solar presents the real challenge. We have to make it click or the 2022 target of 100 GW will turn out to be just a flight of fancy.Though the fastest-growing segment within India’s renewable energy sector, rooftop solar is still not growing fast enough, as ideally required to get to the elusive target. This is mainly because of lack of policy initiatives like net-metering and incentives for financial investors.
Considering the critical nature of power systems, gaining the time-synchronized, real-time view of the transmission and distribution network at the right time, by the right person, is key for taking timely right decisions. Conventional systems (RTUs and SCADA) used to gain the essential information (magnitude), while the new devices (PMUs - Phasor Measuring Units) capture the magnitude and phase angle. This in turn gives information on the phase angle differences (grid stress), small signal stab
The future of the wafer industry remains extremely exciting. The impressive set of innovations of Meyer Burger’s DW291 are a big step forward for the PV wafering industry and have pushed cost levels to new lows. The new DW291 will play a significant role in making solar energy more affordable and accelerating the adoption of renewable energy.
The world economy is shifting toward less energy intensive models of growth; fracking has driven down commodity and energy costs and prices; renewable energy and electric vehicles are taking market share; litigation on climate change and other environmental issues is expanding; and campaigns in opposition to fossil fuels have matured and are a material risk to the fossil fuel sector.
Based on the recent techno-economic developments in EV sector and the vision of the Government of India, a need was felt by Government of Maharashtra to formulate a policy for promotion of this sector in Maharashtra. The State Government envisions to build Maharashtra as a model state in EV.
