Commercial and industrial (C&I) sector consumes 51% of the total electricity generated in India, with a mere 3% of this consumption coming from renewable energy. To increase renewable energy uptake among C&I consumers, India needs to explore new models like virtual power purchase agreements, green tariffs, internationally tradable RECs that have already been successfully tried and tested in many countries—according to a report by climate advocacy group WWF India.
Program aims to drive down the cost of solar electricity to a maximum of Rs2.50/kWh in a nation where tariffs vary wildly from state to state.
An Indian Institute of Technology research team analyzed around 300 studies about PV panel waste containing carcinogenic metals. The researchers said solar module recycling is not economically profitable and policy support is necessary to avoid panels being dumped in landfill.
These systems—to be deployed in Aurangabad, Nashik and Pune—will have provision for mobile charging, transfer of automated meter reading and water discharge reading data.
December 26 is the last date for generators to submit bids for supply of power from their existing 100 MW solar plants. Technical bids will open on December 27.
Bids are invited for supply, installation and commissioning of Balance of System (BOS) items for the state-owned engineering major’s 100 MW (AC) solar plant in Gujarat. The last date for bid submission is December 10.
The Indian capital has so far installed only 146 MW of rooftop solar capacity, against year 2019 target of 606 MW set under the Delhi Solar Policy. The slow growth is primarily due to certain myths among consumers which need to be debunked with better installer-consumer connect—says Delhi Solar Campaigner Sandeep Dahiya who currently leads the 100% UP, SeeNow, Energy & Power Sector reform work in India as a Campaigner at Purpose Climate Lab.
The platform connects credible renewable energy projects with investors, and has already delivered 5 MW of energy to a range of companies in Southern India and Rwanda.
The investment—part of a $592 million assistance package—will be used to promote adoption of smart meters, distributed solar photovoltaic systems and e-vehicles in India.
