Indian Wind Energy Industry Market Overview 2012

India’s renewable energy industry is one of the most dynamic in the world. With a rapidly growing economy, an expanding population and an unprecedented thirst for power, wind is increasingly being seen as an essential part of the domestic energy mix.

However, it is widely known that there are key challenges to be overcome in order to achieve the renewable energy target of “40 gigawatts (GW) by 2022”. Key issues surround securing finance, sustainable government policy, the domestic manufacturing environment among others.

“The government has liberalised capital inflows, so we can expect more foreign investment for projects” (sic)

Sunil Jain, the chief operating officer of Green Infra, an IPP that was founded in 2008 to develop wind, hydro, solar and biomass projects. Estimates of wind energy potential in India have been rising rapidly in recent years. In 2010, India’s Center for Wind Energy Technologies put it at just 103 gigawatts (GW). Then a joint study by Harvard University and the Technical.

Research Center of Finland assessed it at about 1,000 GW. Most recently, the well-respected Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, in California, reported that India could have between 2,006 GW and 3,121 GW of wind capacity. The study said greater e ciency in wind production, improvements in turbine technology, and greater use of geographic information systems (GIS) to identify sites, have all contributed to the higher forecasts.

Emmvee Solarizer fit for heights

Emmvee have installed more than 25 solar water heating systems in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh, India.

The temperature in Kullu and Manali varies from -1.73⁰c to 26.3⁰c. Under normal conditions, the hot water requirement per person is about 25 litres per day (LPD). Emmvee’s planning and design team configurated a system for 40 LPD per person to bring more efficiency for the needs of the people of a rather cold region.

Emmvee has gained an expertise for remote and high altitude regions by having installed a large number ofsolar water heating systems in this area. The installation was very challenging as there was a gradient roof top at an altitude above 6,400 ft.

The solar systems supplied are Solarizer Plus Heat Exchanger Models with a 300LPD and 500LPD capacity. Two 500 LPD systems for two residences were installed in Manali and three 300 LPD systems for 3 residences were installed in Kullu. All the installed systems are used for bathing purposes.

Glass enamelled Solarizer Plus tanks with flat plate collectors using heat exchanger technology were used for the installation. Emmvee is the only manufacturer of glass enamel coated tanks of sizes varying from 100 to 3000 litres for solar water heating systems in India. The life time of a glass enamelled tank is considerably higher compared to stainless steel tanks. The additional layer of glass enamel on the steel layer increases the strength of the tank, the resistivity against corrosion and provides hygienic water quality for a long time even in the hilly regions where temperature conditions are extreme.

Sharing his experience, Mr. D.V.Manjunatha, founder and Managing Director of Emmvee, says: ”Considering the fact that the temperatures in hill stations are extreme, we are pleased that the performance of Solarizer Plus is highly efficient. The installation went smooth despite the gradient rooftop and higher altitude thanks to our expert installation team.”

India and USA reinforce R&D in clean energies

Indo – US Joint Clean Energy Research and Development Centre (JCERDC) a joint initiative of the Government of India and the US Department of Energy, aims to facilitate Research and Development on clean energy by teams of scientists, technologists and engineers from India and the United States, and related joint activities, needed to deploy clean energy technologies rapidly. This Centre also proposes to support multi-institutional network projects using public-private partnership model of funding.

The Indian and US Governments have committed an amount equal to US $25 Million spread over a period of 5 years for 3 priority areas of Solar Energy , Second Generation of Bio-fuels and Energy Efficiency of Buildings.

IFC concludes first rooftop solar project, to replicate five more in India

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is supporting the Indian state of Gujarat to replicate in five cities a rooftop solar project first completed in Gandhinagar, improving access to power and reducing air pollution from the burning of wood and fossil fuels.

The two pilot projects of 2.5 megawatt each demonstrated the viability of generating solar power through a grid-interactive system on rooftops, and will serve as a model for roll-out across the cities of Bhavnagar, Mehsana, Rajkot, Surat and Vadodara. IFC is also developing a policy framework for the replication of rooftop solar concept in Gujarat based on the experience gained in Gandhinagar.

This program is the first of its kind in India and aims to be a benchmark for green energy generation at the household level. The two pilot projects will produce approximately nine million units of clean energy and help to avoid 6,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year. The project will also help to mobilize private sector investment of approximately $12-14 million.

Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) update

On April 27th, 2012 India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) provided an update to the nation’s parliament on the status of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).

The report found 1.15 GW of solar photovoltaic (PV) and concentrating solar power (CSP) projects in various sub-programs and stages of completion including 229 MW of commissioned PV.

Three days later, on April 30th, 2012 the MNRE issued an estimate that 940 MW of PV and CSP has been added to India’s grid, as part of 14.7 GW of overall renewable energy capacity added in the previous three years.
