Dholera: Weather conditions to push solar power price higher 21.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Challenging weather conditions in Dholera, where 5,000 MW solar power projects with an investment of Rs25,000 crore are planned, are expected to increase the cost of power, two senior officials who are connected with the projects, said. Raj Gopal, principal secretary of state energy and petrochemicals department, said that the terrain in Dholera is challenging, with high salinity level, and corrosive air. Moreover, the CRZ area, where the solar park would come up, is inundated for three months every year. "Because of these conditions, we will need to use better quality materials." "The cost of civil works will be higher, and the cost of power will also be more," Raj Gopal told reporters on the sidelines of CII's Solar Conclave 2018. Jai Prakash Shivahare, CEO of Dholera Special Investment Region Development Authority, said that even after accounting for 50% higher cost of civil works, the power price, to be discovered through competitive bidding, is expected to be below Rs3 per unit.

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, ...

Apple launches $300 million 'green' fund for China suppliers 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Apple it has established a fund to invest nearly $300 million over the next four years to connect its Chinese suppliers to renewable energy as Beijing pushes an anti-pollution drive. The US giant said it and 10 initial suppliers would jointly provide the money for the China Clean Energy Fund, aimed at helping the companies make the transition to clean energy. Apple said the project would produce an initial one gigawatt of clean energy, equivalent to powering nearly a million homes. Most of Apple's products worldwide are assembled in vast production networks in China that employ hundreds of thousands of workers, and the company has taken various steps to reduce resulting carbon emissions. It said in April that its headquarters in Cupertino, California, had gone 100 percent renewable and announced initiatives to achieve the same in other Apple facilities worldwide.
