Coal shortage forces Karnataka govt to tap hydel power 25.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Coal shortage, coupled with rising demand, has forced the Energy Department to tap into hydel sources, but that might lead to a tougher summer. The other options are buying additional power or load-shedding. With the state going to the polls next year, the second option is ruled out. The department is already purchasing 900 MW a day until March. If it goes for further purchase, the burden on the exchequer will be substantial. As a result, the department has turned to drawing an average of 15 million units (MU) from the three major hydel stations, as against the stipulated 10 MU. According to officials in the State Load Dispatch Centre (SLDC), Chief Secretary Subhash Chandra Khuntia had directed the department not to draw more than 10 MU from hydel stations. But after the Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd (KPCL) downgraded its supply from the thermal stations, the department made it clear to the government that drawing power from hydel stations is inevitable. The KPCL recently downgraded its supply by ...

CEA releases policy to promote power generation from paddy straw 24.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Residents from Delhi and the National Capital Region can now expect relief next year from the pollution caused due to the burning of stubble by farmers in Punjab and Harayana. The Central Electricity Authority (CEA) on behalf of ministry of power has framed up a policy for biomass utilisation for power generation through co-firing in coal based power plants.

About 2.5 to 3 lakh tonnes of biomass pellets are required for 7% blending in a thermal power plant of 1,000 MW capacity. Biomass co-firing has a potential to create a market for large scale consumption of agro residue and convert into electricity in eco-friendly and cost effective manner while mitigation problem of air quality deterioration. The policy envisages that the appropriate ...

DKS denies govt indulging in vindictive politics 23.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Energy Minister D K Shivakumar said on Thursday that the government was neither involved in vindictive politics nor was targeting any leader from the BJP or JD(S). He said this while reacting to the statements by former energy minister and BJP MP Shobha Karandlaje regarding the House committee report on power purchase. Speaking to media persons here, he said the House committee had submitted its report and it was immature to say that leaders of the Opposition parties were being nailed in the report. If there are any changes to be made to the report, the government is ready to do it. But the BJP is indulging in mudslinging and disrupting the House often. The session was held in Belagavi to discuss important issues pertaining to the north Karnataka region, but the BJP played spoilsport by staging protests, he said. The Centre is not supplying coal for power generation in the required quantity. But to ensure that uninterrupted power was supplied to the people, the government had invited tenders to purchase ...
