Key elements of 2nd Solar India 2017 expo
- The centre has envisioned generating 40GW through roof-top grid interactive solar power to fulfil the 100GW target of solar power.
- Buildings consume approximately 40 percent of the energy produced. By installing rooftop solar, 40,000 MW can be generated by 2022
Ground Mounted Solar:
- The Centre has set an ambitious target of generating 100GW (1,00000MW) of solar power by 2021-22 under the National Solar Mission
- Envisaged to generate 60GW ground mounted grid-connected solar power
- By 2020, about 11.3 gigawatts of energy storage will be installed globally, equivalent to less than one percent of the total installed capacity of intermittent renewables, according to data from Bloomberg New Energy Finance
- Battery storage to play an important role in India’s sustainable energy future
- Development of 60 solar cities and 33 solar parks
- Metros, airports and railway stations implementing solar projects
- Dayal Singh College in Delhi installed solar panels for the electricity requirement of the college and the vicinity
- Census 2011 data shows the inequalities in basic amenities between rural and urban India:
- While 93% of urban households have electricity, only 55% of rural households have it
- While 71% of urban households have access to piped water connections, the figure is only 35% for rural households
- Micro grid as a concept may be young, but it holds the key to lighting and digitally connecting millions of lives
- The notation of micro grids came from the availability of renewable power and due to demand of electricity from remote areas
- The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) is laying down standards for all stakeholders of street lighting, which involves use of efficient lamp technologies, optimization of pole and placement, efficient light distribution that balances the need for light and visibility
- Solar LED street lighting is an especially cost-effective solution for parking lots, parks, residential streets, airports, and other applications where providing electricity is expensive or problematic
Energy Efficient Products:
- Consumer Products: solar water heating systems; Solar home lighting systems; solar lanterns; solar pumps; solar mobile chargers; solar cookers; LED solar torch; solar RO plant; solar fan, solar Inverters, etc.
- Commercial Products: Solar traffic signals; solar road studs/blinkers, etc.
- India has added a total of 2,311.88 MW of grid-connected power generation capacity from renewable energy sources like solar and wind this fiscal in the country.
- The Government of India has up-scaled the target of renewable energy capacity to 175 GW by the year 2022. The new target includes 100 GW from solar, 60 GW from wind, 10 GW from bio-power and 5 GW from small hydro-power
