India’s Energy Storage Market

Advanced energy storage technologies can play an important role in renewable integration, energy access, electric mobility and the smart cities initiatives of the Indian government. We are at a critical stage for building a manufacturing ecosystem for advanced energy storage technologies in India. While, around the globe, over 200 GWh of advanced energy storage manufacturing capacity is already built and another 200 GWh of new capacity will be built within the next three to five years.

How Tech is Making Thermal Power Generation More Sustainable in The Changing Energy Landscape

With the latest sophisticated primary NOx reduction technology, including burner modification and over firing system (OFA), the desired NOx emission levels given by Indian regulation can also be met at a local power plant in India. Though implementing the Primary Low-NOx solution for one boiler takes months as resources to implement the modifications are limited, it is a cost-efficient option that can help coal-fired thermal power plants be ready on time

India Must Focus on Domestic Manufacturers to Meet the Ambitious 175 GW of Clean Energy Target by 2022

According to the Climate scope report, renewable energy accounted for 71 GW of India's installed generating capacity in June 2018. This is a substantial increase from existing capacities of 3.5 GW, 23 GW, 4.4 GW, and 4.2 GW, respectively (MNRE, November 2015). As the solar spread increases, the government plans to set up a proper framework to boost domestic manufacturing for the sector.

India’s Solar Sector

It will be also interesting to see if the government will do away with reverse bidding and adopt FiT. Solar has already reached grid parity and there is no real need to further reduce the tariff and put more cost pressures on the value chain. Stability in tariffs can mitigate the impact of expected volatility in price, increase investor’s confidence, and ensure the participation of serious long-term players.

Benchmark Prices Solar

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has published the benchmark costs for off-grid solar PV systems and grid connected rooftop solar power plants for the year 2018-19.

Intelizon has developed such a platform to set the standards for smart cities globally.

The landscape of outdoor lighting and surveillance is set to see a dramatic change with the introduction of IOT and AI technologies being introduced combined with energy efficient LED, cameras, electronics, batteries and green solar power. The wireless smart city will create a smart interconnected and environmentally friendly world for everyone.

Integration of Solar with Electric Vehicles

Integration of renewable energy will make EVs truly cleaner than conventional fuel vehicles taking into account the lifetime CO2 emissions. Distributed solar energy will help reduce transmission and distribution losses, thereby, reducing the lifetime CO2 emissions as well as the operating cost of EVs further, and accelerate their commercial feasibility. Distributed solar will also help curtail the CAPEX requirement for upgradation of transmission and distribution infrastructure resulting from ad

India’s Power Targets for 2018-19

A generation programme is prepared by CEA based on the actual generation by the stations during previous years, maintenance schedule furnished by the stations for the year 2018-19 and anticipated new capacity additions during the year.

India’s Hydro Power so far and some interesting case studies from Hydro power producers in India.

Power is one of the most critical components of infrastructure crucial for the economic growth and welfare of nations. The existence and development of adequate infrastructure is essential for sustained growth of the Indian economy.

How Hydro fared in 2017?

Between 2012 and 2017, India’s hydropower capacity addition target was 10,897 MW while only 5,479 MW was achieved in the 5-year plan, showing only a 50% target achieved.While India made an unfair Cross Border Electricity Trade (CBET) policy for power purchase from Nepal and Bhutan, hydropower projects planned for finalisation in 2018 may take a hit as the CBET has riders which have not gone well with our neighbouring countries.

Results from India’s Market Survey on Electric Vehicles Expectations

The transportation sector alone accounts for about one-third of the total crude oil consumption and road transportation accounts for more than 80% of this consumption. Therefore the Indian government is focusing on the sector and is keen to partner with the industry for investing in sustainable mobility solutions for the future.

The sun can wait: Why growth not equal profits?

We support development and engineering efforts for making nascent technologies available, with qualities and efficiency that surpass today’s silicon-based solar technologies performance.Materials research is where we can start, particularly those that could achieve higher conversion ratios to energy or cheaper, and widely available than the rare earth elements used in battery storage.

The case against antidumping duty in Solar.

The Indian Government is expected to introduce an Anti-Dumping Duty (ADD) on solar cells and modules. It is a duty imposed on foreign goods that are being dumped in the country at unfairly low prices.The reason behind this bold step is nothing but the surge of solar exports seen in the market as well as the complaints from local manufacturers about unfair pricing. Currently, it is said that around 89% of solar panels used in India are imported from countries like China, Malaysia and Taiwan.

Wind Power 2017 Statistics

In 2017, the global wind industry continued with installations above 50 GW. After five years of essentially flat markets from 2009-2013 due to the global financial crisis, installations crossed the 50 GW mark in 2014 mark, and have stayed over 50 GW for the last four years.
