LED lighting programme sets off a supply - demand chain reaction
India's streetlights form a crucial component of the nation's investment in lighting and road safety. Launched in 2015, EESL's street light national programme (SNLP) has been instrumental in retrofitting over 6.1 million conventional street lights with LEDs in 941 municipalities across 28 states and union territories in the country.
Energy-efficient power plants crucial to tackle emissions
India's power generation capacity has nearly tripled in the last 15 years from 105 GW in 2002 to 315 GW in 2017 as demand for electrical energy surged in a rapidly expanding economy. During this time, 140 GW of coal and gas power generation installed base were set-up.
Green thrust to boost revival
Gas-based power capacity addition in India has been hit badly owing to factors like - the cost of power, cost of transporting gas, and non-availability of gas. A decade back there were major initiatives by different stakeholders to put up gas-based power plants thinking that the fuel will be available in plenty from domestic production.
Change norms for clean air
India´s pollution challenges are bigger in comparison to other countries. One, because it is a developing nation and two, because large swathes of the country still aren´t exposed to industrialisation as compared to others. As such, if our energy usage is not changed from what it is now, India is likely to be in the grip of pollution for an extended period of time.
Yet to Gain Momentum
With a target to provide round-the-clock electricity across the country by 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Power Minister Piyush Goyal have put power on top of the agenda for the country.
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
A Deal for the Planet
The latest attempt at saving the planet from the dangers of climate change has paid off. However, the power sector has to gear up for the new dynamics it brings in. The world was expected to arrive at a time to pay for its sins and excesses by 2050
