Courting the green 21.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Saturday
With another World Earth Day falling today, the need to conserve the city's depleting green cover is only reiterated. The theme this year is environmental and climate literacy. The many campaigns that one sees in Bengaluru, in an effort to protect and preserve the green cover, is proof that people still care and want to do their bit to conserve the environment. Efforts are being undertaken by many small groups to clean the city by painting its walls so that people don't dump garbage there and deface them. From planting saplings and tapping solar energy to saving water and electricity and using compost to grow plants, Bengalureans, especially youngsters, are leading the way towards a greener city. Environmentalists feel that awareness and education about conserving green spaces must begin from school. Dr T V Ramachandra, faculty, Energy and Wetlands Research Group, Centre for Ecological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science, feels that a sense of belonging and sincerity among the next generation is the ...

Avoiding pitfalls in rooftops 20.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Installing a ballast-based rooftop system may look easy at the outset, but needs a thorough understanding of the technical aspects such as stability, orientation and load-bearing capacity of the structures while installing. While solar rooftop installations have been growing at a rapid pace in the country (at a compounded annual growth rate of 90%), it is important to be aware of the best practices to be followed when installing a rooftop ballast-based solar system, to avoid any major accident, especially during thunderstorms. Some common mistakes developers or customers make during installations are: Load not placed as per design The age and height of a building will reveal the load-bearing capacity of the ballast to be placed on the structures. When the design of the structure is not considered while placing ballast load, it will lead to roof damage or easy elevation of the panels by wind. Improper load placement of ballast on the structures creates tilting and instability of the structures. ...

First solar panel road opens in France 20.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A solar panel road, claimed to be the first in the world, has opened in France. The 0.6-mile (one kilometre) stretch of road in the small Normandy village of Tourouvre-au-Perche is paved with 2,880 solar panels, which convert energy from the sun into electricity. The panels cover an area of 2,800 square metres (30,139 square feet).

It is hoped that the road - officially opened by France's Minister of Environment, Segolene Royal - could eventually provide enough energy to power the village's street lights.

Some 2,000 motorists will use the solar panel road every during a two-year test period. The road is expected to produce 280 MWh of electricity a year. While the daily production will fluctuate according to weather and seasons, it is expected to reach 767 kWh per day, with peaks up to 1,500 kWh per day in summer.

France's ultimate goal is to cover 1,000 kilometres (620 miles) of roadways with solar panels.
