The private-sector power producer will group its renewable energy business under wholly-owned arm JSW Neo Energy as it targets growth in renewable energy generation, energy storage, and green hydrogen business.
A report has stated the renewable-plus-fossil fuel model is the best short term option to meet the assured supply conditions in the Solar Energy Corporation of India’s round-the-clock power tenders. Further out, as the cost of batteries decline, that technology is likely to become the most viable option for providing critical, non-intermittent power.
The company has signed a memorandum of understanding with the state government to invest INR 1,200 crore for the design, development and manufacturing of new products and capacity expansion in the electric vehicles space.
The Indian solar manufacturer and EPC contractor has chosen KSL Cleantech as the channel partner for the retail distribution of its solar panels in the eastern and northeastern markets of India.
The renewable energy developer is ready to invest INR 18,000 crore (US$ 2414.29 million) in setting up a 50 kilotonne per annum green hydrogen production plant in the State.
First, the bad news: PV modules will be caught up in the global wave of inflation. After a very brief respite, prices are picking up again for almost all module technologies. But the changes recorded for early October are paltry compared to the price increases still to come, writes Martin Schachinger of pvXchange. As of the cutoff date for this market survey, some manufacturers had already announced even more significant upward corrections for future deliveries. The price adjustments shown in the October index are thus only a tentative start to rises of no less than 15-20% over the price levels that prevailed just a few weeks ago. However, this will probably be the last price correction we can expect at the manufacturer level until the end of the year.
The International Energy Agency predicts that India will record the world’s fastest growth in energy consumption from buildings through 2040. The energy demand could create a big market for solar installers and equipment providers, particularly in the commercial and industrial sector. While building codes now include provisions for renewable energy integration, effective implementation will be key to ensuring compliance.
Out of this, investments totaling US$ 8.4 trillion would be needed by the power sector alone to significantly scale up generation from renewable energy and associated integration, distribution and transmission infrastructure. Another US$ 1.5 trillion would have to be invested in the industrial sector for setting up green hydrogen production capacity to advance the sector’s decarbonization. Investment needed for the mobility infrastructure would be US$ 198 billion.
