Dondaicha solar park row: Mahagenco identifies sites to match 22.5.2018 General News
State-run power generation firm Mahagenco has identified locations in the Marathwada and Vidarbha regions to set up 250 mw of solar projects, after its 500-mw Dondaicha solar park project faced resistance from locals in surrendering their lands, a top official said. "We have not been able to acquire the land required and so we are not going ahead with the project for the time being. But we are in talks with the locals. In the meantime, we are exploring opportunities in other locations where Mahagenco owns certain land parcels to match capacity," a Mahagenco official told PTI on condition of anonymity. He said the company has land parcels in Latur (Marathwada), Washim and Yavatmal (Vidarbha) where nearly 250 mw of solar capacity is likely to be installed. In June last year, Mahagenco had invited bids for the first 500 mw solar park in Maharashtra. However, the project got embroiled in a controversy after a 84-year old Dhule farmer Dharma Patil, who had come to Mantralay ..

Hawaii volcano generates toxic gas plume called laze 22.5.2018 General News
The eruption of Kilauea volcano in Hawaii sparked new safety warnings about toxic gas on the Big Island's southern coastline after lava began flowing into the ocean and setting off a chemical reaction. The molten rock started pouring into the sea over the weekend. It's been generating plumes of lava haze or "laze" as it interacts with seawater. It's just the latest hazard from a weeks-old eruption that has so far generated earthquakes and featured gushing molten rock, giant ash plumes and sulfur dioxide. The eruption has destroyed more than 40 buildings forced more than 2,000 people to evacuate. Yesterday, lava entered and then stalled on the property of a geothermal plant near one of Kilauea's new volcanic vents. Officials earlier this month removed 190,000 litres of stored flammable gas from the plant to reduce the chance of explosions. Here are key things to know about the latest volcanic threat. Lava haze is made of dense white clouds of steam, toxic gas and tiny shards of ...

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 ...

National Capital to sizzle with mercury set to touch 44°C soon 22.5.2018 DNA: Mumbai
The city continued to sizzle on Monday as it recorded maximum temperature of 42 degrees Celsius and the sky remained clear adding to the heat. The meteorological department has predicted no respite from the rising mercurial level in the coming days as it is expected to touch 44 degrees Celsius soon. Monday saw a minimum temperature of 25 degrees Celsius and strong surface wind during the day. The weatherman has advised people to stay indoors during the daytime and keep themselves properly covered and hydrated if they step out. The minimum temperature will oscillate between 26 to 27 degrees Celsius. While the summer it at its peak, the water crisis in the national Capital looms even larger this summer and all that the people can expect from the government is a series of blame game with neighbour Haryana. The city receives its water from Haryana, which of late has cut short the supply. Only last week, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had written to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar about the ...

3 killed, thousands affected by torrential rains in Sri Lanka 20.5.2018 General News
At least three people were killed and thousands of others have been affected in Sri Lanka as heavy rains and strong winds wreaked havoc in the country. The Met Department today said that heavy showers will continue for the next few days due to the South Western Monsoon and the formation of a low-pressure zone over Sri Lanka. The Disaster Management Centre said that a woman died in the Badalkumbura area in Moneragala as a tree fell on her yesterday. Meanwhile, two people were struck by lightning at a paddy field in Welikanda. The victims were aged 17 and 33. Power supply has been disrupted in several areas due to trees falling on power lines as a result of incessant rains. The Department of Meteorology has warned of lightning and urged the public to take precautions. Several people have been evacuated to safer locations since last week while hundreds of houses were damaged due to the severe weather. Sri Lanka, which has been heavily deforested for cash crops, often witnesses landslides

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, ...
