Is it possible to get 100 percent of our energy from renewable sources? 22.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The questions regarding renewable energy are never-ending. Is there enough space for all the wind turbines and solar panels to provide all our energy needs? What happens when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow? Won't renewables destabilise the grid and cause blackouts? A study conducted by the Lappeenranta University of Technology explored these questions and came to some interesting conclusions. The researchers doubted the feasibility of many of the recent scenarios for high shares of renewable energy, questioning everything from whether renewables-based systems can survive extreme weather events with the low sun and low wind, to the ability to keep the grid stable with so much variable generation. The scientists then hit back with their response to the points raised by Heard and colleagues. The researchers analysed hundreds of studies from across the scientific literature to answer each of the apparent issues. They demonstrated that there are no roadblocks on the way to a 100 percent ...

Wind-solar hybrid policy: Setting up adequate evacuation 20.5.2018 General News
Even as the recently announced national wind-solar hybrid policy is expected to boost renewable power generation, setting up adequate number of evacuation network will be critical, experts say. Under the new policy, the government intends to auction wind-solar hybrid projects on tariff based competitive bidding, and these can be set up anywhere across the country depending on feasibility and land availability with bidders. "Consistent forecasts from analysts suggest that the country will face major grid integration issues in the coming years if evacuation infrastructure is not improved at the same rate as renewables capacity additions," Vijay Khandwekar, head-module mounting structure business, solar projects, Tata International, told PTI. The government has set an ambitious target of achieving 175 gw of renewable capacity by 2022, of which solar would be 100 gw, and the rest 60 gw would be wind. The installed capacities of 20 gw of solar and 35 gw of wind at present, ...
