More power to gas will fuel cogeneration
The gas-based cogeneration in India is still a challenge because of gas pricing. Currently, it is difficult to motivate the consumer to go for the gas- based combined heat and power (CHP) option. Except for fertilisers and oil & gas companies, we are not seeing much except for those installed before.
Enabling Tariffs & Policies Called for
Renewable energy contributes over 22 per cent to India's installed power generation capacity. Although conventional fuels still dominate this segment, the share of renewable energy sources has been steadily increasing from about 8 per cent in 2009.
Gas, a Better Option
Energy is one of the most important commodities enhancing the growth of any country. And, India in the recent past has taken various steps in augmenting its resources with the aim of attaining energy security.
Technology enables BoP to overcome sluggishness
To meet the growing power demand in India, resource generation capacities are being enhanced continuously and while coal based thermal power plants are still the main sources of generating electricity, wind and solar generating capacity have increased many folds over the past few years.
Capacity addition in Renewable Energy (RE) has shown a steady progress in the past decade. Though wind energy is leading the RE basket, solar, biomass and small hydro have made significant progress in the last few years.
Clouds around coal
Coal plays an essential role in our global energy mix, particularly in India and the developing world through electricity generation. This fossil fuel has gained prominence due to its availability in abundance in the bowels of earth, lack of disastrous impact like nuclear plants do, and favourable economics it continues to enjoy in power generation
