Solar supercapacitor could power future of wearable sensors 20.7.2018 DNA: Top News
A team of scientists led by an Indian-origin professor has developed a new solar-powered supercapacitor that could help make future wearable technologies lighter and more energy-efficient. In a paper published in the journal Nano Energy, researchers from the University of Glasgow's Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) group describe how they have developed a promising new type of graphene supercapacitor, which could be used in the next generation of wearable health sensors. Currently, wearable systems generally rely on relatively heavy, inflexible batteries, which can be uncomfortable for long-term users. The BEST team, led by Professor Ravinder Dahiya, have built on their previous success in developing flexible sensors by developing a supercapacitor which could power health sensors capable of conforming to wearer's bodies, offering more comfort and a more consistent contact with skin to better collect health data. Their new supercapacitor uses layers of flexible, three-dimensional porous ...

Duty on Chinese solar cells may not lead to tariff hikes 18.7.2018 DNA: Mumbai
The move by Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) recommending a hike in safeguard duty on Chinese and Malaysian solar cells to 25% from the earlier 15% has left domestic solar panel producers in a state of confusion. At the same time, industry officials aver that an immediate increase in solar tariffs is unlikely. The order proposes to have a safeguard duty on the imported solar cells for a period of two years. In the first year, 25% safeguard duty could be imposed, followed by 20% during the first six months of the second year and 15% in the subsequent six months. The demand for such a levy was made as domestic solar modules are 8-10% costlier than the imported ones, which is a major deterrent for local producers to compete in the international markets. Having a safeguard duty will give a competitive edge to domestic players. However, among the confusions that have immediately arisen are the levy of the same on solar modules being manufactured in the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) within India, ...

Solar cells from China, Malaysia face 25% safeguard duty 17.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The Chinese and Malaysian manufactured solar cells being imported to India is likely to attract 15% to 25% safeguard duty during the next two years. On Monday, the Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has recommended three slab safeguard duty on imported solar cells from China and Malaysia, while exempting all other countries including United States of America, Taiwan and European nations. As per the recommendation made by DGTR, 25% of duty will be levied during the first year followed by 20% for a period of initial six months of the subsequent year and 15% duty in the last six months of the second year. The investigation report prepared by DGFT reads, "There has been a significant increase in imports and the domestic industry has suffered serious injury, considering overall performance, on the basis of listed economic parameters such as market share and profitability, which have sharply declined over the injury period 2014-15 to 2017-18 whereas market share of imports have increased during the ...

Maharashtra government bats for solar projects on large dams 12.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
In a major push for the renewable energy sector and to overcome resistance to the acquisition of private land for infrastructure projects, the state government has set the ball rolling for floating solar power projects on large dams. This will see solar panels being installed on the Ujani dam, followed by sites like the Jaikwadi and Koyna reservoirs. A senior official from the Maharashtra energy department said the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MahaVitaran) had floated expressions of interest (EoI) for a 1,000 MW floating solar power project at Ujani dam. The project will be awarded through the tariff-based competitive bidding method, where the bidder quoting the lowest tariff is selected. "After Ujani, we are planning to take up work at the Koyna dam in Satara district and the Jaikwadi dam in Aurangabad," he added. At the Ujani dam, which is one of the largest in Maharashtra, and a crucial water supply and irrigation source for Solapur district, the project will cover 2,000 ...

Rajasthan: PHDCCI tie-up with rating agency to help MSMEs 12.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The policy and industry needs should match and in this context the industrial chambers have to play a crucial role. In this context, it is, therefore, only appropriate that the PHD chamber has set up its office in Jaipur. This was stated by Vinod Zutshi, former secretary with the ministry of tourism, Government of India. Zutshi has stepped into the new role of special advisor to PHDCCI, Rajasthan.  He was speaking on the occasion of formal launch of the PHDCCI Rajasthan State Chapter in Jaipur. Zutshi said that the strength of Rajasthan is its heritage which is also the strength of tourism in the state. However, other sources of tourism must also be tapped since only one source can get saturated. He added that the solar power also happens to be one of the key strengths of the state. Solar thermal potential is highest in Rajasthan, however, it still remains largely untapped. This medium should be focused upon, he added.  Additional chief secretary industries and chairperson RICCO, Rajeeva Swaroop said ...

Rajasthan: Solar energy is now the preferred source of power 9.7.2018 DNA: Money
Solar energy has ticked off all the necessary boxes to become a favourite of the suppliers in search of an efficient source of power. Solar energy is the way forward towards clean energy in the state rather than wind energy given its low rate in the state.  In last few years, the rates of solar energy have come down drastically in comparison to wind energy. A record low solar tariff of Rs 2.44 per unit was achieved in Bhadla in the state in 2017 during the bidding carried out by solar energy corporation limited in 2017 for Bhadla Solar Park. A solar investor said that after various bidding rounds of  wind energy at the Centre it turned out to be about 10 per cent costlier than solar energy. Such is the prevailing situation in the state that not many new investments in wind energy sector are coming its way. “There is hardly any new investment and the cost of windmill is not going down significantly thus not making the power competitive as compared to the solar energy,” said a wind energy producer from the ...

'Solar farming' raises profits for Dhundi village farmers 9.7.2018 DNA: Money
While the state might have recently launched the Suryashakti Kisan Yojana (SKY) for farmers to generate solar power, nine farmers from Dhundi village of Kheda district have been practicing solar farming ever since they launched Dhundi Solar Energy Producers' Cooperative Society around two years ago. The village, as a result, became an example for energy minister, Saurabh Patel, who visited the village before launching SKY. "The village had implemented the scheme almost two years ago. Before announcing the scheme, I visited the village to meet these farmers," said Patel. In May 2016, nine farmers became solar entrepreneurs and launched DSEPCS, which transformed their lives. "We used to spend Rs 25,000 a year on the diesel-run pump to fetch water for farms. After installing the solar grid panels in the farms, we are earning Rs 65,000 a year through clean energy while also saving money," Pravin parmar, secretary of DSEPCS. DSEPCS was a pilot project created as part of a field research by the International ...
