The Delhi-based distributed solar company secured the projects under Uttar Pradesh Power Transmission Corporation Limited’s Open Access solar scheme in the State.
The company’s arm Tata Power Solar has landed the engineering, procurement, and construction work for a cumulative 100 MW of distributed solar capacity in Maharashtra. The awarded capacity includes multiple ground-mounted projects.
Bids are invited to set up a cumulative 147 MW of grid-interactive decentralized solar capacity in Maharashtra. The solar power generating systems, in sizes ranging from 2 MW to 10 MW (AC), shall come up at lands within or around the various substations in the State.
India’s solar capacity growth up to 2030 also means the generation of a significant mass of PV module waste due to early failures or damages during transportation, installation, and operation. The waste generation could be 21 kilotonnes assuming India’s cumulative installed PV capacity grows to 287.4 GW by 2030 from 40 GW in 2020. This doesn’t include end-of-life panel waste as PV systems installed between 2020-30 are assumed to have at least 30 years of lifetime.
India will require large swaths of land for the huge expansion of renewable energy capacity over the coming decades. The energy transition requires planning for proper siting of these plants and solutions like agrivoltaics, distributed energy systems, and offshore wind to reduce land-use conflicts.
UK’s development finance institution CDC will invest $1 billion in green projects in India between 2022-26. Besides, UK has committed a new $200-million private and multilateral investment into the joint UK-India Green Growth Equity Fund that invests in Indian renewable energy.
Feeding solar electricity directly from its own panels into overhead lines on a fully-electrified rail network would be more cost-effective for the state-owned company than buying that green power from the grid, according to a new study.
Developers and EPC contractors have until September 30 to apply for grid-connected, ground-mount solar installation under the Scheme that allows farmers to set up PV power plants on their uncultivable land and sell the generated power to the State Discoms. The plants, in sizes of 500 kW to 2 MW, shall come upon land within a 10 km radius of substations.
As technology redefines the delivery of network services, grid operators in remote areas the world over are searching for more cost-effective and reliable alternatives to traditional poles and wires. Standalone power systems are the solar application that is at the forefront of the switch, and they’re ramping up fast.
