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 ...

India may miss solar, wind energy targets by 2022, says survey 16.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
India may not achieve its renewable energy target of having 100 GW of solar energy and 60 GW of wind power by 2022, as per a survey conducted by a consulting firm Bridge to India. India is expected to add total 66 GW of solar energy and 52 GW of wind power by March 2022 -- which is 66 per cent of 100 GW of solar and 87 per cent of 60 GW wind targets set by the government, as per the 3rd edition of RE CEO Survey by Bridge To India said in a statement. The survey fond that the most pressing issue for the industry is safeguard duties, followed by uncertainty in overall policy environment and weak financial position of Discoms. It said that 70 pe cent of the industry (respondents) feels that bidding in the sector is irrationally aggressive. However, it finds that despite these challenges, bulk of respondents are optimistic about the industry and overall growth prospects. Gujarat, Karnataka and Maharashtra top the list of preferred states for overall sector, open access solar and rooftop solar, ...

Creative children of Andamans: Giving wings to their dreams 14.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
Does it matter that children of today feel even taking notes is tiresome, Ah! Anjana Mistry, of Class 9, wants to have a camera in her spectacles so that she can take a snapshot of the blackboard to capture everything the teacher wrote. During Andaman and Nicobar shodhyatra, SRISTI, with the help of other volunteers, particularly Chanchal, a very dynamic teacher,  discovered many creative children.   Anay Mistry, same Swaraj-gram village, had his feet on the ground and redesigned a paddy thrasher seeing the plight of his parents. He wanted thresher for leftover grains while Nitsh Das wanted to improve the same process for primary threshing itself. Aman Biswas wanted a wind-powered boat. Of course sail there are boats, but he thought of roving windmill generating energy could also be used. Bijoy Kumar Biswas, in 8th standadrd, wanted to redesign betel nut peeling machine. It is one of the most valuable cash crop of that region and yet there is hardly much mechanisation of the harvesting and peeling ...

DNA MONEY EXCLUSIVE: IDBI fails to recover $72 mn from Aircel founder, gives to recover earlier one 3.5.2018 DNA: India
Amid the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe of IDBI Bank's loans to C Sivasankaran, former promoter of Aircel, it has emerged that the bank had extended a loan of $72 million to the latter in a hope of recovering earlier loans. IDBI Bank extended a loan of $72 million to Sivasankaran's Axcel Sunshine after another group company -- Helsinki-based wind turbine manufacturer Win Wind Oy -- to which it loaned an amount, went bankrupt, a source familiar with the development said. In a sequence of events, Win Wind Oy went bust in 2013, leaving IDBI Bank facing a possibility of losing $65 million loan it had given to it. The loan was given for setting up the project and working capital needs of the company. This was the time when Sivasankaran was betting big on non-renewable energy that Finland was promoting in a big way. To recover the money, the bank officials then sanctioned a $83 million loan to another Sivasankaran company Axcel Sunshine in December 2014. In lieu, Axcel Sunshine pledged 5.5 crore ...

New water-based battery to store solar, wind energy 2.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
Stanford scientists have developed a water-based battery that could provide a cheap way to store wind or solar energy, which can be fed back into the electric grid and redistributed on high demand. The prototype manganese-hydrogen battery, described in the journal Nature Energy, stands just three inches tall and generates a mere 20 milliwatt hours of electricity, which is on par with the energy levels of LED flashlights one might hang on a key ring. The researchers are confident they can take this table-top technology up to an industrial-grade system that could charge and recharge up to 10,000 times, creating a grid-scale battery with a useful lifespan well in excess of a decade. According to Yi Cui, a professor at Stanford University in the US, manganese-hydrogen battery technology could be one of the missing pieces in the energy puzzle - a way to store unpredictable wind or solar energy so as to lessen the need to burn reliable but carbon-emitting fossil fuels when the renewable sources are not ...

Gujarat wind power capacity to rise by 1,000 MW a year 5.3.2018 DNA: Money
Gujarat is likely to see huge investments in wind power over the next few years as the state government is targeting to double wind power generation capacity in the state by 2022. As of December 2017, Gujarat was home to 5,526 MW of wind power generation capacity, the second highest in the country after Tamil Nadu, with a little over 7,800 MW. While the southern state is likely to remain at the top, Gujarat will see significant addition in wind power capacity over the next five years, and it is likely to cross 10,000 MW, a senior official said. "We plan to add 1,000 MW wind power capacity every year till 2022," Sujit Gulati, additional chief secretary of Energy & Petrochemicals Department, told DNA when asked about the state's plans to tap wind energy. Installing one MW of wind power typically costs approximately Rs6 crore, which means that wind power could see investment of around Rs6,000 crore a year if the state achieves the 1,000 MW target. The target is definitely ambitious as the state has seen ...

Gujarat discoms miss RPO target, buy costlier solar power 13.2.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Power distribution companies operating in the state failed to buy adequate wind power to fulfil their Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) target of last year while exceeding the target of costlier solar power. The Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) and Torrent Power have filed petitions before the Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission (GERC) for approval of RPO of 2016-17. “Both the utilities failed to meet the RPO target set by GERC. To make up for the shortfall of wind power, they purchased additional solar power, putting burden of nearly Rs112 crore on power consumers,” energy and regulatory expert KK Bajaj, said in a letter to the Commission. Both GUVNL and Torrent Power were mandated to meet 10% of their total power requirement through renewable power sources, of which RPO for wind power was 8.25% and 1.75% for solar power. Both failed to meet the 10% RPO target. Bajaj said that GUVNL sourced 6.73% power from wind projects, and 1.86% from solar projects. On similar lines, wind power ...
