European Solar Power Market Trends We Can Learn From

European Solar Power Market Trends We Can Learn From

Green Alert
The Solar Power industry is rapidly on the rise, especially after uncertain oil pricing and the realization of the warming planet. An analysis of the market trends of this sector, especially in Europe can help bring forward interesting insights for the rest of the world to learn from. After a dip in 2016, the European solar power market recovered remarkably in 2017 and added 8.6 GW of solar capacity. This growth was largely driven by technological progress, cost reductions and the development of novel business models such as on-site direct wire mini power purchase agreements (PPAs). This business model is increasingly getting among large-scale solar project developers to overcome regulatory barriers. Simultaneously, fully automated energy management across all sectors and segment...

Comparing Utility Use on An International Scale

The economy of India, like the rest of the world, is dependent on oil one way or the other. However, the demand for sustainability warrants alternate solutions that are not only cheap, but less taxing on the environment. This has bred the promotion of electric vehicles in Delhi NCR. Whether this step is counter-productive or not, time will tell. The promotion has taken speed because just last year, India was named as one of the least green countries of the world. The reason was increased dependence on thermal power and the scarcity of alternatives like electric cars and other green initiatives. Newer Initiatives In the vein of the precedent that has been explained earlier, an initiative in the form of Mahindra E20 has been launched this April. This is an electric car that offers smar...
Renewable Energy Certificate Mechanism Launched to Boost Green Energy in India

Renewable Energy Certificate Mechanism Launched to Boost Green Energy in India

Green Alert
Union Power Minister, Shri Sushil Kumar Shinde, among others, launching the Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) Mechanism, a national level scheme to promote green energy A large part of India's renewable energy potential is concentrated in few states in the country and some of these states have already achieved comparatively high levels of renewable electricity purchase as share of their total electricity consumption. After having met their Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO), these states are now mostly reluctant to buy energy from renewable sources after having met their RPO as mandated by the State Electricity Regulatory Commission (SERC). This is hampering the growth of the renewable sector in an upward manner since the electricity from renewable energy is at present more expensive ...

“Solar energy is the energy source which is there forever and at no cost. I don’t understand why we look for anything else for energizing the world”, proclaimed Mr. Pankaj Chaturvedi, CEO of TRA International Ltd. while announcing the upcoming Solar Training program to be held in Delhi for two days. TRA International Ltd. works to advocate the idea that ‘investment in training for the right audience with the right content and delivery mechanism can be one of the single most significant factor in the success of Solar Technology adoption’. Supporting the initiative, Delhi Greens organisation has come on board as the event outreach partner. Talking about the collaboration, Govind Singh, Founder-Director of Delhi Greens said, "An energy policy based on decentralization is the only effic

Palwal is a small town on Delhi-Agra highway and one among many other small towns that are fast developing because these are now within commuting distance from Delhi city. So people can afford to continue to stay in these towns and leave their families there, while they go for a day’s job to Delhi and back. These towns have very irregular electric supply from the regular distribution companies that are supposed to supply electricity. On the other hand people who live here have more money than they used to have. So they can afford to buy electricity for their domestic usage. Since the power supply is erratic, they prefer to have diesel generator sets. Sometimes there is one enterprising person who operates a large GenSet and provides it to shop keepers operating in local markets, mor

Solar Impulse: Around the World in a Solar Plane!

If the Swiff adventurer Dr. Bertrand Piccard, who made history in 1999 by circling the globe non-stop in a balloon, has his way, you would be flying around the Planet without bothering about fuel (as you know it) or living with the guilt of the large amounts of carbon emissions that are a consequence of your every single air-borne trip. Presenting Solar Impulse: the light weight solar aircraft prototyped HB-SIA which is Dr. Piccard's attempt at demonstrating the potential of renewable energies. In the words of the man himself, Solar Impulse is 'to demonstrate the importance of the new technologies in sustainable development, and of course, once again, to place dream and emotion at the heart of scientific adventure.' In an offline as well as virtual press conference by Solar Impul
